EEF2K (eukaryotic elongation factor 2 kinase) is a threonine kinase that regulates protein synthesis by controlling the rate of peptide chain elongation. Up activation, by a variety of upstream kinases including AMPK or TRPM7, EEF2K phosphorylates the elongation factor EEF2 at a single site. Then, EEF2K renders EEF2 unable to bind ribosomes and inactive - in turn, the rate of protein synthesis is reduced.
