4EGI-1 is a small-molecule inhibitor of eIF4E/eIF4G interaction with IC50 value of 125μM .
The eIF4E/eIF4G complex plays a key role in gene translation initiation and is regulated by 4E-BP. Overexpression of eIF4E or eIF4G can induce malignant transformation in mammalian cells. As a mimic peptide of 4E-BP, 4EGI-1 competes with eIF4G and disrupts the association of eIF4E/eIF4G. The KD value for 4EGI-1 binding to eIF4E is 25μM. 4EGI-1 can not affect the binding of 4E-BP to eIF4E and instead causes increase of this binding level. In addition, 4EGI-1 is found to inhibit the Cap-dependent translation while enhances the initiation factor-independent translation. In Jurkat leukemia T cells, 4EGI-1 also causes eIF4G to be displaced from eIF4E .

0 ~ 200 μM; 24 hrs
In Jurkat cells, 4EGI-1 (> 50 μM) treatment induced cell death after 24 hrs. In addition, 4EGI-1 significantly increased subG1 DNA content, which was inhibited by cotreatment with the caspase inhibitor zVAD-FMK.
