Putrescine is required for the expression of eif-5a in Trichomonas vaginalis.

Abstract

Recently, we found that Trichomonas vaginalis contains a eukaryotic translation initiation factor 5A (TveIF-5A) with unknown function in this parasite. eIF-5A is the only cellular protein dependent of polyamines to form a hypusine residue, an unusual basic amino acid that is post-translationally formed by modification of a single specific lysine residue in… (More)
