Gene name

Comments [?]

Function Trims short 3' overhangs of a variety of RNA species, leaving a one or two nucleotide 3' overhang. Responsible for the end-turnover of tRNA: specifically removes the terminal AMP residue from uncharged tRNA (tRNA-C-C-A). Also appears to be involved in tRNA biosynthesis.
case <FTGroup:1>
Cofactor Mg(2+)
Note: Binds two Mg(2+) per subunit. The active form of the enzyme binds two Mg(2+) ions in its active site. The first Mg(2+) forms only one salt bridge with the protein.
end case
Subunit Homodimer.
Similarity Belongs to the RNase T family.
