Eukaryotic elongation factors

Jump to: navigation, search

Eukaryotic elongation factors are very similar to those in prokaryotes.

Elongation in eukaryotes is carried out with two elongation factors:

  • eEF-1, whose α and βγ subunits act as counterparts to EF-Tu and EF-Ts, respectively
  • eEF-2, the counterpart to prokaryotic EF-G
