- This enzyme comprises a family of proteins involved in prokaryotic as
well as eukaryotic protein synthesis.
- In the initiation factor complex, it is IF-2b (98 kDa) that binds GTP
and subsequently hydrolyzes it in prokaryotes.
- In eukaryotes, it is eIF-2 (150 kDa) that binds GTP.
- In the elongation phase, the GTP-hydrolyzing proteins are the EF-Tu
polypeptide of the prokaryotic transfer factor (43 kDa),
the eukaryotic elongation factor EF-1alpha (53 kDa), the prokaryotic
EF-G (77 kDa), the eukaryotic EF-2 (70-110 kDa) and the signal
recognition particle that play a role in endoplasmic reticulum
protein synthesis (325 kDa).
- EF-Tu and EF-1alpha catalyze binding of aminoacyl-tRNA to the
ribosomal A-site, while EF-G and EF-2 catalyze the translocation of
peptidyl-tRNA from the A-site to the P-site.
- GTPase activity is also involved in polypeptide release from the
ribosome with the aid of the pRFs and eRFs.
- Formerly EC 22.214.171.124.
