Depositor Comments

For diagnostic digest, an additional PvuI digestion is necessary to distinguish the insert from the vector because of their similar sizes.

The EIF4G1 translation contains M432V compared to NP_937884 (NM_198241.2); however the nucleotide change resulting in the amino acid change is more conserved between species, and it is located between functional domains of eIF4G1 (PABP-binding site and eIF4E-binding site), and does not affect its function as a translational factor
