Where is the GTP used in the initiation of translation?

At least 1 initiation factor and GTP are required to recruit the large ribosomal subunit and to "load" it into the initiation complex. The binding of the large subunit requires GTP, and once it is successfully loaded the initation factors, GDP and Pi are released.
