]) to eukaryotic elongation factor 2 (eEF2) and releases nicotinamide (7).
Then they began experimenting with dual-phase steel and found that its properties are well-suited to their purposes: it allows for thinner walls and lower weight; it has a high elongation factor which gives better formability; and it offers a greater spread between yield strength and tensile strength, so that it will bend easily in deep draw dies without breaking.
These ribosylating toxins transfer the ADP-ribose moiety to eukaryotic host target proteins, such as elongation factor 2 [Alpha], to render them inactive (54).
The Roleez wheel has tires made of soft, pliable polyurethane, which are said to offer a tensile strength of 900 lbs/in  and an elongation factor of 425%.
