Peptide Initiation Factor IF 2 .
Prokaryotic Initiation Factor 2 .
Peptide Initiation Factor IF-2 .
The largest of the three prokaryotic initiation factors with a molecular size of approximately 80 kD. It functions in the transcription initiation process by promoting the binding of formylmethionine-tRNA to the P-site of the 30S ribosome and by preventing the incorrect binding of elongator tRNA to the translation initiation site. .
