Deletion of elongation factor-like 1 (Efl1p), a cytoplasmic GTPase homologous to the ribosomal translocases EF-G/EF-2, results in nucle(ol)ar pre-rRNA processing and pre-60S subunits export defects. Efl1p interacts genetically with Tif6p, a nucle(ol)ar protein stably associated with pre-60S subunits and required for their synthesis and nuclear exit. In the absence of Efl1p, 50% of Tif6p is relocated to the cytoplasm. In vitro, the GTPase activity of Efl1p is stimulated by 60S, and Efl1p promotes the dissociation of Tif6p-60S complexes. We propose that Tif6p binds to the pre-60S subunits in the nucle(ol)us and escorts them to the cytoplasm where the GTPase activity of Efl1p triggers a late structural rearrangement, which facilitates the release of Tif6p and its recycling to the nucle(ol)us.
