Accepted name: tRNA-dihydrouridine47 synthase [NAD(P)+]
Reaction: 5,6-dihydrouracil47 in tRNA + NAD(P)+ = uracil47 in tRNA + NAD(P)H + H+
Other name(s): Dus3p; tRNA-dihydrouridine synthase 3
Systematic name: tRNA-5,6-dihydrouracil47:NAD(P)+ oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoenzyme. The enzyme specifically modifies uracil47 in tRNA.
