Besides the eIF4E binding motif, there are two other key regulatory motifs in 4E-BP1, a RAIP motif, named after its sequence Arg-Ala-Ile-Pro at the N-terminus, and an mTOR signaling (TOS) motif at the C-terminus (Figure 5) [90, 91].
In contrast to 4EBP1 and 4EBP2, 4EBP3 lacks a conserved N-terminal regulatory motif (RAIP) that is critical for phosphorylation of 4EBP1/2 at the mTORC1-regulated sites [13,19] and may play a different cellular role than 4EBP1 and 4EBP2 [20].
