Regulation summary diagram for thpR

ThpR belongs to the family of two-histidine (2H) phosphoesterase enzymes and has been shown to be an "end healing" cyclic phosphodiesterase (CPDase) that hydrolyzes RNA 2',3'-cyclic phosphodiesters [Remus14].

Biophysical characterization of ThpR and comparison to two other cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases from yeast and Arabidopsis has been reported. ThpR appears to exist as a monomer in solution [Hofmann02]. A crystal structure of ThpR in complex with 2'-AMP has been solved at 2 Å resolution, implicating His43 as a general acid catalyst and His125 as a general base catalyst. Arg130 may have a role in stabilizing the transition state. Site-directed mutagenesis of these amino acids confirmed their importance for catalytic activity [Remus14].

ThpR was initially identified as a "2'-5' RNA ligase" that catalyzes the ligation and cleavage of 2'-5' linkages in RNA, a reversible transesterification reaction, in vitro. This activity was demonstrated using tRNA halves prepared with yeast pre-tRNA and splicing enzymes; the reaction does not require nucleotide triphosphates, as other known ligases do [Greer83, Arn96]. This reaction is probably not physiologically relevant [Remus14].

Overproduction of ThpR leads to reduced growth rate and the inability to grow at 43°C; deletion of thpR has no effect on growth under laboratory conditions [Arn96].

Enzymatic reaction of: RNA 2',3'-cyclic phosphodiesterase

an RNA terminal-2',3'-cyclic-phosphate + H2O <=> an RNA 2'-terminal-phosphate

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Reversibility of this reaction is unspecified.

Enzymatic reaction of: 2'-5' RNA ligase (RNA 2',3'-cyclic phosphodiesterase)

EC Number: 6.5.1.-

a 5' half-tRNA molecule with a 2',3' cyclic phosphate on its 3' end + a 3' half-tRNA molecule with a hydroxyl on its 5' end <=> a ligated tRNA with a 2'-5' linkage

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

This reaction is reversible. [Arn96]

Note: The enzyme may catalyze this reaction in vitro, but this reaction is not considered to be physiologically relevant.

The reaction is reversible, favoring cleavage of the 2'-5' bond [Arn96].
