Accepted name: tRNA-intron lyase
Reaction: pretRNA = a 3′-half-tRNA molecule with a 5′-OH end + a 5′-half-tRNA molecule with a 2′,3′-cyclic phosphate end + an intron with a 2′,3′-cyclic phosphate and a 5′-hydroxyl terminus
Other name(s): transfer ribonucleate intron endoribonuclease; tRNA splicing endonuclease; splicing endonuclease; tRNATRPintron endonuclease; transfer splicing endonuclease
Systematic name: pretRNA lyase (intron-removing; cyclic-2′,3′-phosphate-forming)
Comments: The enzyme catalyses the final stage in the maturation of tRNA molecules.
