Gene Group (FlyBase)
CYTOPLASMIC TRANSLATION ELONGATION FACTORS -
Cytoplasmic (or eukaryotic) translation elongation factors function in the chain elongation stage of ribosome-mediated polypeptide synthesis in the cytoplasm. (Adapted from FBrf0233552).
Protein Function (UniProtKB)
mRNA-binding protein involved in translation elongation. Has an important function at the level of mRNA turnover, probably acting downstream of decapping. Involved in actin dynamics and cell cycle progression, mRNA decay and probably in a pathway involved in stress response and maintenance of cell wall integrity. Functions as a regulator of apoptosis.

Post Translational Modification
eIF-5A seems to be the only eukaryotic protein to have a hypusine residue which is a post-translational modification of a lysine by the addition of a butylamino group (from spermidine).
