Abstract

A highly purified preparation of the eucaryotic initiation factor eIF-2 from calf liver which forms a ternary complex with GTP and Met-tRNAfMet also exhibits a potent GDP binding activity. The factor preparation specifically forms a binary complex with GDP, other ribonucleoside diphosphates and GTP are inactive. Evidence is presented indicating that the GTP-dependent Met-tRNAfMet binding and binary complex formation with GDP are mediated by the same protein which has an apparent molecular weight of 67,000 as judged by glycerol density gradient centrifugation.
