SUI5, translation initiation factor eIF5, L000002305, YPR041W
Translation initiation factor eIF5; functions both as a GTPase-activating protein to mediate hydrolysis of ribosome-bound GTP and as a GDP dissociation inhibitor to prevent recycling of eIF2
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)


RPS24, ribosomal 40S subunit protein S22A, S8, rp50, YS22, S24A, S22A, L000003150, L000001760, YJL190C
Protein component of the small (40S) ribosomal subunit; homologous to mammalian ribosomal protein S15A and bacterial S8; RPS22A has a paralog, RPS22B, that arose from the whole genome duplication

Affinity Capture-Western

An interaction is inferred when a bait protein is affinity captured from cell extracts by either polyclonal antibody or epitope tag and the associated interaction partner identified by Western blot with a specific polyclonal antibody or second epitope tag. This category is also used if an interacting protein is visualized directly by dye stain or radioactivity. Note that this differs from any co-purification experiment involving affinity capture in that the co-purification experiment involves at least one extra purification step to get rid of potential contaminating proteins.


An eIF5/eIF2 complex antagonizes guanine nucleotide exchange by eIF2B during translation initiation.

Singh CR, Lee B, Udagawa T, Mohammad-Qureshi SS, Yamamoto Y, Pavitt GD, Asano K

In eukaryotic translation initiation, the eIF2.GTP/Met-tRNA(i)(Met) ternary complex (TC) binds the eIF3/eIF1/eIF5 complex to form the multifactor complex (MFC), whereas eIF2.GDP binds the pentameric factor eIF2B for guanine nucleotide exchange. eIF5 and the eIF2Bvarepsilon catalytic subunit possess a conserved eIF2-binding site. Nearly half of cellular eIF2 forms a complex with eIF5 lacking Met-tRNA(i)(Met), and here we investigate its physiological significance. ... [more]
