  • 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 GGenes*… …   Wikipedia

  • Prokaryotic elongation factors — In prokaryotes, three elongation factors are required for translation: EF Tu, EF Ts, and EF G. EF Tu The prokaryotic factor EF Tu (elongation factor thermo unstable) mediates the entry of the aminoacyl tRNA into a free site of the ribosome. EF Tu …   Wikipedia
