Eukaryotic elongation factors

Eukaryotic elongation factors are very similar to those in prokaryotes.

Elongation in eukaryotes is carried out with two elongation factors:

  • eEF-1, whose α and βγ subunits act as counterparts to EF-Tu and EF-Ts, respectively
  • eEF-2, the counterpart to prokaryotic EF-G


  • EEF1A1, EEF1A2, EEF1A3
  • EEF1B1, EEF1B2, EEF1B3, EEF1B4
  • EEF1D, EEF1E1, EEF1G
  • EEF2
