ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Retroviral ribonuclease H.
Reaction catalysed
Endohydrolysis of RNA in RNA/DNA hybrids. Three different cleavage modes: 1. sequence-specific internal cleavage of RNA. Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 and Moloney murine leukemia virus enzymes prefer to cleave the RNA strand one nucleotide away from the RNA-DNA junction. 2. RNA 5'-end directed cleavage 13-19 nucleotides from the RNA end. 3. DNA 3'-end directed cleavage 15-20 nucleotides away from the primer terminus
  • Retroviral reverse transcriptase is a multifunctional enzyme responsible for viral replication.
  • To perform this task the enzyme combines two distinct activities.
  • The polymerase domain (EC occupies the N-terminal two- thirds of the reverse transcriptase whereas the ribonuclease H domain comprises the C-terminal remaining one-third.
  • The RNase H domain of Moloney murine leukemia virus and Human immunodeficiency virus display two metal binding sites.
