Functional implications related to the gene structure of the elongation factor EF-Tu from Halobacterium marismortui.


The primary structure of the gene for the elongation factor EF-Tu from the halophilic archaebacterium Halobacterium marismortui (hEF-Tu) is described. It is the first gene of a halophilic elongation factor EF-Tu to be sequenced. When the sequence of hEF-Tu is compared to that of homologous proteins from other organisms, the highest identity (61%) is found… (More)
