In Pathway: tRNA processing
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Mass balance status: Undetermined; a substrate lacks a chemical formula
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: ribonuclease P
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: RNase P
This is the endonucleolytic cleavage of RNA to remove the excess 5' nucleotide from tRNA precursor, yielding the final 5' terminus of a mature tRNA.
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Endonucleolytic cleavage of RNA, removing 5-extranucleotides from tRNA precursor.
