Accepted name: tRNA-dihydrouridine16/17 synthase [NAD(P)+]
Reaction: (1) 5,6-dihydrouracil16 in tRNA + NAD(P)+ = uracil16 in tRNA + NAD(P)H + H+
(2) 5,6-dihydrouracil17 in tRNA + NAD(P)+ = uracil17 in tRNA + NAD(P)H + H+
Other name(s): Dus1p; tRNA-dihydrouridine synthase 1
Systematic name: tRNA-5,6-dihydrouracil16/17:NAD(P)+ oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoprotein. The enzyme specifically modifies uracil16 and uracil17 in tRNA.
