Protein Summary

TusC from Escherichia coli

Full name: tRNA 2-thiouridine(34) synthase
Synonym: yheM
GI: 16131223
COG: COG2923
UniProt: P45531
Structures: | 2D1P |
Complex: TusBCD


Part of a TusBCD complex which functions as a heterohexamer (a dimer of the heterotrimer). TusBCD complex participates in sulfur transfer from IscS cystein desulfurase to MnmA protein which participates in mnm5s2U synthesis at tRNA wobble positions. It mediates sulfur relay via a putative persulfide state of the TusD subunit. It transfers sulfur from TusA to TusE.
