Protein Information
Name EEF2
Synonyms EF2
Function Catalyzes the GTP-dependent ribosomal translocation step during translation elongation. During this step, the ribosome changes from the pre-translocational (PRE) to the post- translocational (POST) state as the newly formed A-site-bound peptidyl-tRNA and P-site-bound deacylated tRNA move to the P and E sites, respectively. Catalyzes the coordinated movement of the two tRNA molecules, the mRNA and conformational changes in the ribosome.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Phosphorylation by CSK promotes cleavage and SUMOylation-dependent nuclear translocation of the C-terminal cleavage product.

The eukaryotic translation Elongation Factor 2 (eEF2) is a 95 kDa member of the G-protein superfamily. Following peptide bond formation, eEF2 catalyzes translocation of the deacylated tRNA in the P-site and peptidyl tRNA in the A-site into the E- and P- sites, respectively (1). The activity of eEF2 is regulated by phosphorylation (2). To be active, eEF2 must be dephosphorylated, and phosphorylation at Thr-56 causes inactivation, resulting in the termination of mRNA translation (3). eEF2 is phosphorylated by a specific, calcium and calmodulin (Ca/CaM)-dependent eEF2 kinase (4).
