eif-2 kinasemedical dictionary


<cell biology> A dsrna-activated camp-independent protein serine/threonine kinase that is induced by interferon. In the presence of dsrna and ATP, eif-2 kinase autophosphorylates on several serine and threonine residues. The phosphorylated enzyme catalyses the phosphorylation of the alpha subunit of eif-2, leading to the inhibition of protein synthesis.
