      Background InformationEukaryotic initiation factor 4A-II, (EIF4A2), or ATP-dependent RNA helicase eIF4A-2 is the critical RNA helicase protein required for mRNA cap recognition and mRNA binding to the ribosome. EIF4A2 is part of a multi-subunit complex that allows translation of mRNAs to begin. EIF4A2 unwinds the RNA secondary structure in the 5’-UTR region and thus allows the small ribosomal subunit to bind the mRNA and begin scanning for the initiator codon. EIF4A2 also plays a key role in mRNA expression inhibition. Recent research demonstrates that inhibition of EIF4A2 function via microRNA inhibition is required first, which then leads to mRNA destabilization and ultimately translation suppression. EIF4A2 is expressed in all tissues, as well as in cancerous tumors. Expression is very high in ovary, followed by liver, kidney, brain and pancreas in lower amounts. EIF4A2 is often used as a “housekeeping” marker as well because of its wide expression.
