Full name: tRNA wyosine derivatives biosynthesis protein Taw2
GI: 74570968
Orf: PH0793
COG: COG2520
UniProt: O58523
Structures: | 3A25 | 3A26 |
Enzyme type: Alpha-amino-alpha-carboxypropyltransferase
Position of modification - modification:


Homologue of yeast Tyw2. It catalyzes the transfer of the “acp” group from AdoMet to the C7 position of the imG-14 base, forming yW-86. It was shown to act on tRNAPhe from yeast mutant strain which possess imG-14 in position 37.
