Release of polypeptide chain initiation factor IF-2 during initiation complex formation.


Polypeptide chain initiation factor IF-2 binds to 30S ribosomal subunits. This binding is enhanced by IF-1 and IF-3. During GTP-dependent formation of a 70S initiation complex, IF-2 is released from the ribosome. During 70S initiation complex formation dependent on the methylene analogue of GTP, GMPPCH(2)P, IF-2 is not released, but remains bound to the 70S… (More)
