GeneCards Summary for CTU2 Gene
CTU2 (Cytosolic Thiouridylase Subunit 2 Homolog (S. Pombe)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CTU2 include phobia, specific and exotropia. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and tRNA modification in the nucleus and cytosol. GO annotations related to this gene include tRNA binding and nucleotidyltransferase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CTU2 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). May act by forming a heterodimer with CTU1/ATPBD3 that ligates sulfur from thiocarboxylated URM1 onto the uridine of tRNAs at wobble position.
