Protein Summary

TrmY from Methanocaldococcus jannaschii

Full name: tRNA(pseudouridine54-N1)-methyltransferase
Synonym: MJ1640
GI: 15669836
COG: COG1901
UniProt: Q59034
Structures: | 3AI9 | 3AIA |
Enzyme type: methyltransferase
Position of modification - modification: t:54 - m1Y


AdoMet dependent methyltransferase. It was shown to catalyze Y:m1Y reaction in vitro in position 54 of a synthetic substrate resembling tRNATrp. Requires pseudouridine (or possibly uridine) in position 55 for efficient conversion of Y54 to m1Y54. This modification is located in the T-loop and is important for the tertiary structure of the tRNA molecule.
