Full name: tRNA pseudouridine synthase Pus10
Synonym: PusX
GI: 74536148
COG: COG1258
UniProt: Q8U1R6
Structures: | |
Enzyme type: pseudouridine synthase
Position of modification - modification: t:54 - Y
t:55 - Y


Initially discovered as an enzyme specific for the formation of pseudouridine at position 55 in the T-loop of archaeal tRNA (Roovers et al., 2006), it was later shown to also catalyze the formation of pseudouridine at position 54 (Gurha & Gupta 2008). Pus10 is universally found in Archaea and only in few Eukarya, however in this last case the real function of eukaryal Pus10 in still unknown.
