GeneCards Summary for CTU1 Gene
CTU1 (Cytosolic Thiouridylase Subunit 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Sulfur relay system. GO annotations related to this gene include tRNA binding and transferase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CTU1 Gene
Plays a central role in 2-thiolation of mcm(5)S(2)U at tRNA wobble positions of tRNA(Lys), tRNA(Glu) and tRNA(Gln). Directly binds tRNAs and probably acts by catalyzing adenylation of tRNAs, an intermediate required for 2-thiolation. It is unclear whether it acts as a sulfurtransferase that transfers sulfur from thiocarboxylated URM1 onto the uridine of tRNAs at wobble position.
