ENZYME entry: EC 3.6.1.62

Accepted Name
5'-(N(7)-methylguanosine 5'-triphospho)-[mRNA] hydrolase.
Alternative Name(s)
M(7)GpppN-mRNA hydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
5'-(N(7)-methylguanosine 5'-triphospho)-[mRNA] + H(2)O <=> N(7)-methylguanosine 5'-diphosphate + 5'-phospho-[mRNA]
Comment(s)
  • Decapping of mRNA is a critical step in eukaryotic mRNA turnover.
  • The enzyme is unable to cleave a free cap structure (m(7)GpppG).
  • The enzyme from Vaccinia virus is synergistically activated in the presence of Mg(2+) and Mn(2+).
  • Formerly EC 3.6.1.30.
