    Elongation factor Tu (EF-Tu) in its GTP conformation is a carrier of aminoacylated tRNAs (aa-tRNAs) to the ribosomal A site during protein biosynthesis. The ribosome triggers GTP hydrolysis, resulting in the dissociation of EF-Tu-GDP from the ribosome. The affinity of EF-Tu for other molecules involved in this process, some of which are unknown, is regulated by two regions (Switch I and Switch II) that have different conformations in the GTP and GDP forms. The structure of the GDP form of EF-Tu is known only as a trypsin-modified fragment, which lacks the Switch I, or effector, domain. The aim of this work was to establish the overall structure of intact EF-Tu-GDP, in particular the structure of the effector domain.
