Picornavirus IRES elements are the examples of types I and II IRESes which require eIF4G, eIF4A, and eIF3 to assemble 48S initiation complex [29].
On the other hand, partial silencing assays (using the knockdown plasmid, pSilencer31 (si31), and hippuristanol (eIF4A inhibitor) treatment) have demonstrated that C- and N-myc IRESes can function only in presence of the C-terminal domain of eIF4GI, eIF4A, and eIF3; This IRES does not require full-length eIF4GI or PABP [34].
Moreover, a recent publication from our lab suggests that the XIAP IRES does not require eIF4G, eIF4E, and eIF4A for initiation complex formation.
While it is possible for the IRES to independently interact with the 40S and 60S ribosomal subunits, canonical translation factors (e.g., eIF4A and eIF3) and IRES-transacting factors (ITAFs) are usually involved to enhance translation efficiency.
The eIF4E2 interacts with eIF4A and eIF4G3 to form a hypoxic eIF4F (eIF4[F.sup.H]) complex that increases translation efficiency independent of mRNA abundance [53] (Figure 1(b)).
Interestingly, eIF4A is also part of eIF4[F.sup.H], and drugs inhibiting this RNA helicase have displayed high preclinical potency, especially silvestrol, in mouse models of tumor progression [93].
Here we showed that CPT potentially bound to eIF4A, one of the components of eIF4F.

It also controls initiation of translation by phosphorylating PDCD4, a tumor suppressor that is a negative regulator of eIF4A [71], and targets it for degradation by the ubiquitin ligase, [beta]TRCP [72].
The eIF4 complex is composed of three polypeptides: eIF4E (the cap binding protein), eIF4A (an RNA helicase), and eIF4G (scaffolding protein).
