What is the enzyme used in translation?
There are two enzymes and four factors involved in translation proccess
- fMet-tRNA-synthetase (only for prokaryotes) - attaches N-Formylmethionine to tRNA
- Aminoacyl-tRNA-synthetase - attaches amino acid to tRNA
- Peptidyl transferase
There are a number of non-enzymes that are also used including:-
- Elongation factors (EF-Tu) -carries aminoacyl-tRNA to ribosome
- Initiation factor
- Translocase (EF-G) - elongation factor that utilizes GTP.
- Release factor
