The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/300 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 95 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 95 kDa).
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
FunctionCatalyzes the GTP-dependent ribosomal translocation step during translation elongation. During this step, the ribosome changes from the pre-translocational (PRE) to the post-translocational (POST) state as the newly formed A-site-bound peptidyl-tRNA and P-site-bound deacylated tRNA move to the P and E sites, respectively. Catalyzes the coordinated movement of the two tRNA molecules, the mRNA and conformational changes in the ribosome.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the GTP-binding elongation factor family. EF-G/EF-2 subfamily.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylation by EF-2 kinase completely inactivates EF-2. Diphthamide is 2-[3-carboxyamido-3-(trimethyl-ammonio)propyl]histidine. Diphthamide can be ADP-ribosylated by diphtheria toxin and by Pseudomonas exotoxin A, thus arresting protein synthesis. ISGylated.
