Systematic analysis of the eIF4E interactome

Active mTORC1 phosphorylates 4E-BP, preventing 4E1 binding. (B) mTORC1 inhibition leads to 4E-BP hypophosphorylation; 4E-BP now binds 4E1 and blocks eIF4F

Honours project: Conduct a systematic analysis of the eIF4E interactome to understand the distinct functional roles of the three mammalian eIF4E proteins in translation initiation.
