Protection Against Hydrolysis EF-Tu

Elongation Elongation

Termination Translation in Prokaryotes

1. Binding of mRNA by small subunit 2. Sliding to identify start codon (Shine-Dalgarno) 3. Base pairing of anticodon of initiator tRNA to AUG in mRNA (3 IFs) 4. Binding of large subunit

5. Entry of second tRNA into A-site (EF-Tu) 6. Peptide bond formation - peptide on tRNA in A-site 7. Translocation (requires GTP & EFG) 8. Exit of used tRNA, entry of new charged tRNA

9. Repeat 5-8 to STOP Codon 10. Entry of release factor with water Translation in Eukaryotes

Differences 1. mRNA structure 2. Ribosome sizes (60S & 40S)

3. rRNA sizes (extra rRNA) 4. No Shine-Dalgarno 5. No fMet
