The hamster elongation factor 2 gene was isolated from genomic libraries of diphtheria toxin- and Pseudomonas aeruginosa exotoxin A-resistant cells containing non-ADP-ribosylatable elongation factor 2, and its structure was determined by a combination of restriction endonuclease mapping and DNA sequence analysis. The entire gene is about 6 kilobases long(More)
Complementary DNA clones, pHEW1 and pRE2, coding for hamster and rat polypeptide chain elongation factor 2 (EF-2), respectively, were isolated and sequenced. It was shown that the cDNA insert in pHEW1 contains a 2574-base-pair open reading frame coding for an 857-amino acid polypeptide with Mr 95,192, excluding the initiation methionine.

In vitro folding of disulfide-containing proteins is generally regulated by redox molecules, such as glutathione. However, the role of the cross-disulfide-linked species formed between the redox molecule and the protein as a folding intermediate in the folding mechanism is poorly understood. In the present study, we investigated the effect of the charge on(More)
