Protein Summary

TrmY from Haloferax volcanii

Full name: tRNA(pseudouridine54-N1)-methyltransferase
Synonym: HVO_1989
GI: 292656118
Orf:
COG: COG1901
UniProt: D4GTL8
Structures: | |
Complex:
Enzyme type: methyltransferase
Position of modification - modification: t:54 - m1Y

Comments:

AdoMet dependent methyltransferase. Pseudouridine in position 55 is important for efficient conversion of Psi54 to m1Psi54. This modification is located in the T-loop and is important for the tertiary structure of the tRNA molecule. Crystal structure of TrmY from M. jannaschii was solved at 1.4 and 1.55A resolution (see the entry for M. jannaschii TrmY).
