EC Number: 3.1.13.5

Enzymes and Genes:
RNase DInferred from experiment: rnd

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Mass balance status: Balance undetermined; a substrate lacks a chemical formula

Instance reaction:
a tRNA precursor with a 5' extension and a long 3' trailer + H2O → a tRNA precursor with a 5' extension + a ribonucleoside 5'-monophosphate (3.1.13.1)

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: ribonuclease D

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: RNase D

Summary:
This reaction is the nonprocessive, exonucleolytic cleavage of the 3' end of tRNA precursor to yield mature tRNA and ribonucleoside 5'-monophosphates.

Enzyme Commission Summary:
This reaction is defined as the exonucleolytic cleavage that removes extra residues from the 3'-terminus of tRNA to produce 5'-mononucleotides.

Alteration of the 3'-terminal base has no effect on the rate of hydrolysis whereas modification of the 3'-terminal sugar has a major effect. tRNA terminating with a 3'-phosphate is completely inactive. This enzyme can convert a tRNA precursor into a mature tRNA.
