Component of the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 (eIF-3) complex, which is required for several steps in the initiation of protein synthesis. The eIF-3 complex associates with the 40S ribosome and facilitates the recruitment of eIF-1, eIF-1A, eIF-2:GTP:methionyl-tRNAi and eIF-5 to form the 43S preinitiation complex (43S PIC). The eIF-3 complex stimulates mRNA recruitment to the 43S PIC and scanning of the mRNA for AUG recognition. The eIF-3 complex is also required for disassembly and recycling of post-termination ribosomal complexes and subsequently prevents premature joining of the 40S and 60S ribosomal subunits prior to initiation.
Ubiquitous, with the highest levels of expression in brain, testis and kidney.

Immunoprecipitation - eIF3K antibody (ab85968)
1 mg of HeLa whole cell lysate was immunoprecipitated using 3µg ab85968. Subsequently, 20% of IP was loaded per lane and probed with ab85968 at 1µg/ml (lane 1) or with a control IgG (lane 2). Detection: chemiluminescence with exposure time of 3 seconds.
