Protein Summary

TcdA from Escherichia coli

Full name: tRNA threonylcarbamoyladenosine dehydratase A
Synonym: YgdL, CsdL
GI: 16130719
Orf: csdL
COG: COG1179
UniProt: Q46927
Structures: | 4RDI | 4RDH | 4D7A | 4D79 |
Enzyme type: dehydratase
Position of modification - modification: t:37 - ct6A


TcdA is an ATP-dependent dehydratase necessary for the conversion of t6A to ct6A. CsdA and CsdE are additional factors involved in ct6A formation. The detailed catalytic mechanism of TcdA and the supportive roles of CsdA and CsdE in ct6A are not known yet.
