ENZYME entry: EC 2.8.1.15

Accepted Name
tRNA-5-methyluridine(54) 2-sulfurtransferase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + [TtuB sulfur-carrier protein]-Gly-NH-CH(2)-C(O)SH + 5-methyluracil(54) in tRNA + H(2)O <=> AMP + diphosphate + 5-methyl-2-thiouracil(54) in tRNA + [TtuB sulfur-carrier protein]-Gly-Gly
Cofactor(s)
Zn(2+).
Comment(s)
The enzyme, found in thermophilic bacteria such as Thermus thermophilus and archaea such as Pyrococcus horikoshii, modifies the ribothymidine (5-methyluridine) residue at position 54 of tRNAs.
