Protein Summary

TsaE from Escherichia coli

Full name: tRNA N6-threonylcarbamoyladenosine(37) synthesis protein
Synonym: YjeE
GI: 16131990
COG: COG0802
UniProt: P0AF67
Structures: | |
Complex: TsaBDE
Enzyme type: ATPase
Position of modification - modification: t:37 - t6A


This protein belongs to P-loop ATPases. It binds ATP and displays a weak ATPase activity (produce ADP). This protein tends to oligomerize in vitro. Despite TsaC (YrdC), TsaD (YgjD) and TsaB (YeaZ) are present in all bacteria, TsaE (YjeE) is absent in several unicellular and symbiotic bacteria, suggesting that some bacteria can carry out t6A synthesis in absence of YjeE. However, TsaD, TsaC, TsaE and TsaB are both necessary and sufficient for t6A biosynthesis in vitro.
