EIF-2 Kinase

Introduction: EIF-2 Kinase

Description of EIF-2 Kinase

EIF-2 Kinase: A dsRNA-activated cAMP-independent protein serine/threonine kinase that is induced by interferon. In the presence of dsRNA and ATP, the kinase autophosphorylates on several serine and threonine residues. The phosphorylated enzyme catalyzes the phosphorylation of the alpha subunit of $EUKARYOTIC INITIATION FACTOR-$2, leading to the inhibition of protein synthesis.
