EC 2.3.2.8     
Accepted name: arginyltransferase
Reaction: L-arginyl-tRNAArg + protein = tRNAArg + L-arginyl-[protein]
Other name(s): arginine transferase; arginyl-transfer ribonucleate-protein aminoacyltransferase; arginyl-transfer ribonucleate-protein transferase; arginyl-tRNA protein transferase; L-arginyl-tRNA:protein arginyltransferase
Systematic name: L-arginyl-tRNAArg:protein arginyltransferase
Comments: Requires mercaptoethanol and a univalent cation. Peptides and proteins containing an N-terminal glutamate, aspartate or cystine residue can act as acceptors.
