Translation elongation factor G (EF-G) in bacteria catalyses the translocation of transfer RNA on ribosomes in the elongation step as well as dissociation of post-termination state ribosomes into two subunits in the recycling step. In contrast, the dual functions of EF-G are exclusively divided into two different paralogues in human mitochondria, named EF-G1mt for translocation and EF-G2mt for ribosomal dissociation. Many of the two eukaryotic EF-G paralogues are phylogenetically associated… CONTINUE READING
