ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.231

Accepted Name
tRNA(Phe) (7-(3-amino-3-(methoxycarbonyl)propyl)wyosine(37)-N)- methoxycarbonyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
tRNA-yW synthesizing enzyme-4.
Reaction catalysed
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 7-((3S)-3-amino-3-(methoxycarbonyl)propyl)wyosine(37) in tRNA(Phe) + CO(2) <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + wybutosine(37) in tRNA(Phe)
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme is found only in eukaryotes, where it is involved in the biosynthesis of wybutosine, a hypermodified tricyclic base found at position 37 of certain tRNAs.
  • The modification is important for translational reading-frame maintenance.
  • In some species that produce hydroxywybutosine the enzyme uses 7-(2-hydroxy-3-amino-3-(methoxycarbonyl)propyl)wyosine(37) in tRNA(Phe) as substrate.
  • The enzyme also has the activity of EC 2.1.1.290.
