This gene encodes a member of the GTP-binding translation elongation factor family. This protein is an essential factor for protein synthesis. It promotes the GTP-dependent translocation of the nascent protein chain from the A-site to the P-site of the ribosome. This protein is completely inactivated by EF-2 kinase phosporylation.

GeneCards Summary for EEF2 Gene

EEF2 (Eukaryotic Translation Elongation Factor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EEF2 include Spinocerebellar Ataxia 26 and Diphtheria. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Oxytocin signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding. An important paralog of this gene is EFTUD2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for EEF2 Gene

  • 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.

Post-translational modifications for EEF2 Gene

  • Phosphorylation by EF-2 kinase completely inactivates EF-2; it requires prior phosphorylation by CDK2 at Ser-595 during mitotic prometaphase. Phosphorylation by CSK promotes SUMOylation, proteolytic cleavage, and nuclear translocation if the C-terminal fragment.
  • Diphthamide is 2-[3-carboxyamido-3-(trimethyl-ammonio)propyl]histidine (By similarity).
  • (Microbial infection) Diphthamide can be ADP-ribosylated by diphtheria toxin and by Pseudomonas exotoxin A, thus arresting protein synthesis.
  • ISGylated.
  • Proteolytically processed at two sites following phosphorylation by CSK.
  • SUMOylated following phosphorylation by CSK, promotes proteolytic cleavage.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys32, Lys42, Lys152, Lys159, Lys235, Lys239, Lys272, Lys275, Lys318, Lys333, Lys366, Lys386, Lys426, Lys481, Lys498, Lys512, Lys594, Lys638, Lys648, Lys688, and Lys845
