Comments [?]

Function Involved in the post-transcriptional modification of the uridine at the wobble position (U34) of tRNA(Lys), tRNA(Glu) and tRNA(Gln). Catalyzes the conversion of 2-thiouridine (S2U-RNA) to 2-selenouridine (Se2U-RNA). Acts in a two-step process involving geranylation of 2-thiouridine (S2U) to S-geranyl-2-thiouridine (geS2U) and subsequent selenation of the latter derivative to 2-selenouridine (Se2U) in the tRNA chain.
Catalytic activity RHEA:42716: (2E)-geranyl diphosphate + 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine(34) in tRNA + H(+) + H2O + selenophosphate = 5-methylaminomethyl-2-selenouridine(34) in tRNA + diphosphate + phosphate + thiogeraniol
PhysiologicalDirection=left-to-right (RHEA:42717)
Subunit Monomer.
Similarity Belongs to the SelU family.
