Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Translation elongation factor eIF-5A; required for translation of proteins containing polyproline stretches, including Bni1p, and this leads to a requirement for mating projection formation; structural homolog of bacterial EF-P; undergoes an essential hypusination modification; HYP2 has a paralog, ANB1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; human EIF5A complements the inviability of the yeast hyp2 anb1 double null mutant [Source:SGD;Acc:S000000760]
