Accepted name: pseudouridylate synthase
Reaction: uracil + D-ribose 5-phosphate = pseudouridine 5′-phosphate + H2O
Other name(s): pseudouridylic acid synthetase; pseudouridine monophosphate synthetase; 5-ribosyluracil 5-phosphate synthetase; pseudouridylate synthetase; upsilonUMP synthetase; uracil hydro-lyase (adding D-ribose 5-phosphate); YeiN; pseudouridine-5′-phosphate glycosidase
Systematic name: uracil hydro-lyase (adding D-ribose 5-phosphate; pseudouridine-5′-phosphate-forming)
Comments: The reaction it readily reversible. While the enzymes from Tetrahymena pyriformis and Agrobacterium tumefaciens produce pseudouridine 5′-phosphate the enzyme from Escherichia coli functions as a pseudouridine-5′-phosphate glycosidase in vivo [5].
