Interaction Information:

Comment Flies expressing LRRK-mutants showed significantly higher sensitivity to exogenous ROS inducers paraquat and H(2)O(2).
Formal Description
Interaction-ID: 1987

gene/protein mutant


increases_activity of

Comment Blockage of 4E-BP phosphorylation and the consequent tighter binding and stronger inhibition of eIF4E lead to higher stress response. Overexpression of eIF4E significantly sensitizied animals to oxidative stress response, similar to the effect induced by mutant dLRRK overexpression.
