1/50 - 1/100. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Mitochondrial GTPase that 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. Does not mediate the disassembly of ribosomes from messenger RNA at the termination of mitochondrial protein biosynthesis.
Protein biosynthesis; polypeptide chain elongation.
Involvement in disease
Defects in GFM1 are the cause of combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency type 1 (COXPD1) [MIM:609060]. It leads to early fatal progressive hepatoencephalopathy.
Belongs to the GTP-binding elongation factor family. EF-G/EF-2 subfamily.
