Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Enzyme: tRNA-dihydrouridine synthase A

Regulation summary diagram for dusA

DusA accounts for about half of the 5,6-dihydrouridine modification observed in wild-type cellular tRNA; DusB and DusC together account for the other half. DusA is solely responsible for the 5,6-dihydrouridine modification observed in tRNA2fMet [Bishop02].

A dusA dusB dusC triple mutant exhibits a complete lack of 5,6-dihydrouridine modification in cellular tRNA, whereas each single mutant exhibits a partial reduction, compared to wild type [Bishop02]. Amino acids that are required for DusA activity have been identified [Savage06].
