Vanishing white matter disease.
Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Lancet Neurol, 2006
The basic defect of this striking disease resides in either one of the five subunits of eukaryotic translation initiation factor eIF2B. eIF2B is essential in all cells of the body for protein synthesis and its regulation under different stress conditions.
Uncharged tRNA-phosphofructokinase interaction in amino acid deficiency.
Bethesda, United States. In Amino Acids, 1996
This diphosphate has been shown to be the proximate effector binding to eIF-2B, the guanine nucleotide exchange factor (Singh, L. P. Arror, A. R. and Wahba, A. J. (1994), FASEB J. 8: 279) which by releasing GDP bound to the inactive GDP: eIF-2 complex, permits the factor to initiate a new peptide chain.
