- TRNA sulfurtransferase
enzymology, a tRNA sulfurtransferase (EC number|184.108.40.206) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:L-cysteine + 'activated' tRNA L-serine + tRNA containing a thionucleotide
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are
L-cysteineand 'activated' tRNA, whereas its two products are L-serineand tRNA containing a thionucleotide.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically the sulfurtransferases, which transfer sulfur-containing groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-cysteine:tRNA sulfurtransferase. Other names in common use include transfer ribonucleate sulfurtransferase, RNA sulfurtransferase, ribonucleate sulfurtransferase, transfer RNA sulfurtransferase, and transfer RNA thiolase.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|9055-57-6."
