Description
This is the hydrophobic structure of Elongation Factors. It has been procedurally shaded for a nice organic look. Its ready right out of the box to incorporate into any scientific visualization.

Elongation factors are a set of proteins that facilitate the events of translational elongation, the steps in protein synthesis from the formation of the first peptide bond to the formation of the last one.
Elongation is the most rapid step in translation:

in prokaryotes it proceeds at a rate of 15 to 20 amino acids added per second (about 60 nucleotides per second)

in eukaryotes the rate is about two amino acids per second.

Elongation factors play a role in orchestrating the events of this process, and in ensuring the 99.99% accuracy of translation at this speed.
