Enzyme Commission Primary Name: tRNAMet cytidine acetyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: YpfI, TmcA
Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme acetylates the wobble base C34 of the CAU anticodon of elongation-specific tRNAMet. Escherichia coli TmcA strictly discriminates elongator tRNAMet from tRNAIle, that is structurally similar and has the same anticodon loop, by mainly recognizing the C27-G43 pair in the anticodon stem. The enzyme can use GTP in place of ATP for formation of N4-acetylcytidine [Ikeuchi08].
