Entrez Gene Summary for QTRTD1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a subunit of tRNA-guanine transglycosylase. tRNA-guanine transglycosylase is a heterodimeric enzyme complex that plays a critical role in tRNA modification by synthesizing the 7-deazaguanosine queuosine, which is found in tRNAs that code for asparagine, aspartic acid, histidine, and tyrosine. The encoded protein may play a role in the queuosine 5'-monophosphate salvage pathway. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for QTRTD1 Gene

QTRTD1 (Queuine TRNA-Ribosyltransferase Domain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include queuine tRNA-ribosyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is QTRT1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for QTRTD1 Gene

  • Interacts with QTRT1 to form an active queuine tRNA-ribosyltransferase. This enzyme exchanges queuine for the guanine at the wobble position of tRNAs with GU(N) anticodons (tRNA-Asp, -Asn, -His and -Tyr), thereby forming the hypermodified nucleoside queuosine (Q) (7-(((4,5-cis-dihydroxy-2-cyclopenten-1-yl)amino)methyl)-7-deazaguanosine).
