Modomics - A Database of RNA Modifications

Full name: tRNA dihydrouridine synthase B
Synonym: YhdG
GI: 78100051
Orf: yhdG,b3260
COG: COG0042
UniProt: P0ABT5
Structures: | |
Enzyme type: dihydrouridine synthase
Position of modification - modification: t:20a - D
t:16 - D
t:20 - D
t:17 - D


DusB and DusC enzymes together introduce all D at positions 16, 17, 20, and 20a in all tRNAs, but it is not known which of them modifies which base and in which tRNA. FMN is the cofactor for the reduction reaction.
