GAS5 cooperates with eIF4E to regulate c-Myc translation.
(A-B) eIF4E expression at mRNA (A) and protein level (B) was assessed by Q-PCR and western blot after the cells were treated with GAS5 or control siRNA. Bars represent mean ±SD from 3 replicates. The experiment was performed three times. (C) GAS5 expression was quantified by Q-PCR in the HEK-293T cells transfected with non-silencing or eIF4E shRNA. Bars represent mean ±SD from 3 replicates. (D). eIF4E protein level after the cells were stably transfected with non-silencing or eIF4E shRNA. (E) The protein level of c-Myc and eIF4E was assessed after the cells were transfected with GAS5/control siRNA and eIF4E plasmid.
