Abstract

The stoichiometry of the complex formed between the Escherichia coli polypeptide elongation factor EF-Tu, GTP and valyl-tRNAvalhas been determined by non-enzymatic deacylation studies on mixtures of the components at well-defined concentrations. A titration end-point was found corresponding to a 1:1 complex of EF-Tu · GTP with the aminoacylated-tRNA i.e. formation of a ternary complex. The result conforms to the classical model of the elongation step and not to the revolutionary proposition of the formation of a 2:2:1 complex; quinternary complex (EF-Tu · GTP)2· as-RNA. © 1995.
