Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 24130777
WB 1/300 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 95 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 95 kDa).
ELISA 1/10000.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • Function
    Catalyzes 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 similarities
    Belongs to the GTP-binding elongation factor family. EF-G/EF-2 subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation 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.
