EC Number: 188.8.131.52
In Pathway: tRNA processing
Note that this reaction equation differs from the official Enzyme Commission reaction equation for this EC number, which can be found here .
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Mass balance status: Marked as unbalanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: tRNA nucleotidyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: phosphate-dependent exonuclease, RNase PH, ribonuclease PH
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Brings about the final exonucleolytic trimming of the 3-terminus of tRNA precursors in Escherichia coli by a phosphorolysis, producing a mature 3-terminus on tRNA and nucleoside diphosphate. Not identical with EC 184.108.40.206 polyribonucleotide nucleotidyltransferase.
