Elongation Factor eEF1 complex, variant CAM1 Overview

GO Annotations consist of four mandatory components: a gene product, a term from one of the three Gene Ontology (GO) controlled vocabularies (Molecular Function, Biological Process, and Cellular Component), a reference, and an evidence code.


Summary
Transports an aminoacylated-tRNA (aa-tRNA) to the ribosomal A-site during the elongation phase of protein synthesis. GTP bound to eEF1A (TEF1/2) is hydrolyzed upon codon-anticodon match between an aa-tRNA in the ribosomal RNA A-site and mRNA bound to the ribosome. Inactive eEF1A-GDP leaves the ribosome and must be recycled to eEF1A-GTP before binding another molecule of aa-tRNA. The guanine nucleotide exchange factor eEF1B catalyzes the exchange of GDP for GTP.
