Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 5B

IF2, eIF5B
Accurate initiation of translation in eukaryotes is complex and requires many factors, some of which are composed of multiple subunits. The process is simpler in prokaryotes which have only three initiation factors (IF1, IF2, IF3). Two of these factors are conserved in eukaryotes: the homolog of IF1 is eIF1A and the homolog of IF2 is eIF5B. This gene encodes eIF5B. Factors eIF1A and eIF5B interact on the ribosome along with other initiation factors and GTP to position the initiation methionine tRNA on the start codon of the mRNA so that translation initiates accurately.

Sliding of a 43S ribosomal complex from the recognized AUG codon triggered by a delay in eIF2-bound GTP hydrolysis.
Dmitriev et al., Moscow, Russia. In Nucleic Acids Res, Jan 2016
Instead, it is eIF5-induced GTP hydrolysis and Pi release that irreversibly trap the 48S complex, and this complex is further stabilized by eIF5B and 60S joining.
Initiation factor 2 stabilizes the ribosome in a semirotated conformation.
Ermolenko et al., Rochester, United States. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, Jan 2016
The formation of the semirotated intermediate requires the presence of an aminoacylated initiator, fMet-tRNA(fMet), and IF2 in the GTP-bound state.

After 50S subunit joining, IF2-dependent reactions take place independent of the presence of IF1 or IF3.
Initiation of mRNA translation in bacteria: structural and dynamic aspects.
Pon et al., Italy. In Cell Mol Life Sci, Nov 2015
The process begins with the formation of an unstable 30S pre-initiation complex (30S pre-IC) containing initiation factors (IFs) IF1, IF2 and IF3, the translation initiation region of an mRNA and initiator fMet-tRNA whose codon and anticodon pair in the P-site following a first-order rearrangement of the 30S pre-IC produces a locked 30S initiation complex (30SIC); this is docked by the 50S subunit to form a 70S complex that, following several conformational changes, positional readjustments of its ligands and ejection of the IFs, becomes a 70S initiation complex productive in initiation dipeptide formation.

Tang et al., Zhengzhou, China. In Mol Genet Genomics, Oct 2015
To dissect the genetic basis of maize kernel development process, a conditional quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis was conducted using an immortalized F2 (IF2) population comprising 243 single crosses at two locations over 2 years.

Choudhary et al., Huntsville, United States. In Bmc Genomics, 2014
Three initiation factors (IF1, IF2, and IF3) and some ribosomal proteins mediate the assembly and activation of the translation initiation complex.
Could the eIF2α-Independent Translation Be the Achilles Heel of Cancer?
Holcik, Ottawa, Canada. In Front Oncol, 2014
This mechanism, which appears to be shared by some RNA viruses and Internal Ribosome Entry Site-containing cellular mRNAs and utilizes auxiliary proteins, such as eIF5B, eIF2D, and MCT-1, is responsible for the selective translation of cancer-associated genes and could represent a weak point amenable to specific targeting for the treatment of cancer.
The scanning mechanism of eukaryotic translation initiation.
Hinnebusch, Bethesda, United States. In Annu Rev Biochem, 2013
A second GTPase, eIF5B, catalyzes the joining of the 60S subunit to produce an 80S initiation complex that is competent for elongation.

Tollervey et al., Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In Nat Struct Mol Biol, 2012

A translation-like cycle is a quality control checkpoint for maturing 40S ribosome subunits.
Karbstein et al., Jupiter, United States. In Cell, 2012
Here we show that maturation involves a translation-like cycle whereby the translation factor eIF5B, a GTPase, promotes joining of large (60S) subunits with pre-40S subunits to give 80S-like complexes, which are subsequently disassembled by the termination factor Rli1, an ATPase.
Poliovirus switches to an eIF2-independent mode of translation during infection.
Lloyd et al., Houston, United States. In J Virol, 2011
The authors show that the cleavage of initiation factor eIF5B during enteroviral infection, along with the viral internal ribosome entry site, plays a role in mediating viral translation under conditions that are nonpermissive for host cell translation.
