ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Ribonuclease T(1).
Alternative Name(s)
(RNA)-guanosine 5'-hydroxy-ribonucleotide-3'-(RNA fragment)-lyase (cyclicizing; (RNA fragment)-3'-guanosine-2',3'-cyclophosphate-forming and hydrolyzing).
Aspergillus oryzae ribonuclease.
Ribonuclease T1.
RNase N(1).
RNase N(2).
Reaction catalysed
(RNA) containing guanosine + H(2)O <=> an (RNA fragment)-3'-guanosine-3'-phosphate + a 5'-hydroxy-ribonucleotide-3'-(RNA fragment)
  • A family of related enzymes found in some fungi and bacteria.
  • The enzyme is specific for cleavage at the 3'-phosphate group of guanosine in single stranded RNA, and catalyzes a two-stage endonucleolytic cleavage.
  • The first reaction produces 5'-hydroxy-phosphooligonucletides and 3'-phosphooligonucleotides ending in Gp with 2',3'-cyclic phosphodiester, which are released from the enzyme.
  • The enzyme then hydrolyzes these cyclic compounds in a second reaction that takes place only when all the susceptible 3',5'-phosphodiester bonds have been cyclised.
  • The second reaction is a reversal of the first reaction using the hydroxyl group of water instead of the 5'-hydroxyl group of ribose.
  • The overall process is that of a phosphorus-oxygen lyase followed by hydrolysis to form the 3'-nucleotides.
  • Formerly EC, EC and EC
