Accepted name: tRNA-5-methyluridine54 2-sulfurtransferase
Reaction: ATP + [TtuB sulfur-carrier protein]-Gly-NH-CH2-C(O)SH + 5-methyluracil54 in tRNA + H2O = AMP + diphosphate + 5-methyl-2-thiouracil54 in tRNA + [TtuB sulfur-carrier protein]-Gly-Gly
Other name(s): TtuA
Systematic name: [TtuB sulfur-carrier protein]-Gly-NH-CH2-C(O)SH:tRNA (5-methyluridine54-2-O)-sulfurtransferase
Comments: The enzyme, found in thermophilic bacteria and archaea, modifies the ribothymidine (5-methyluridine) residue at position 54 of tRNAs. Contains zinc and an [4Fe-4S] cluster. Some organisms, such as the archaeon Pyrococcus horikoshii, do not have a TtuB sulfur-carrier protein, and appear to use sulfide as the sulfur source.
