High impact information on YIH1

  • However, deletion of YIH1 does not increase eIF2alpha phosphorylation or derepress the GAAC, suggesting that YIH1 at native levels is not a general inhibitor of GCN2 activity [1].

Biological context of YIH1


  1. YIH1 is an actin-binding protein that inhibits protein kinase GCN2 and impairs general amino acid control when overexpressed. Sattlegger, E., Swanson, M.J., Ashcraft, E.A., Jennings, J.L., Fekete, R.A., Link, A.J., Hinnebusch, A.G. J. Biol. Chem. (2004) [Pubmed]
