- ID: MMSYN1_0692
- Name: pseudouridine synthase, RluA family
- Organism: JCVI-Syn3.0
- UniProt ID: Q6MT30
- Description: Pseudouridine synthases are the enzymes responsible for the most abundant posttranscriptional modification of cellular RNAs. These enzymes catalyze the site-specific isomerization of uridine residues that are already part of an RNA chain, and appear to employ both sequence and structural information to achieve site specificity. Crystallographic analyses have demonstrated that all pseudouridine synthases share a common core fold and active site structure and that this core is modified by peripheral domains, accessory proteins, and guide RNAs to give rise to remarkable substrate versatility.
Responsible for synthesis of pseudouridine from uracil-746 in 23S ribosomal RNA and from uracil-32 in the anticodon stem and loop of transfer RNAs. Catalytic activity: RNA uridine => RNA pseudouridine. It is commonly found in tRNA, associated with thymidine and cytosine in the TΨC arm and is one of the invariant regions of tRNA. The function of it is not very clear, but it is expected to play a role in association with aminoacyl transferases during their interaction with tRNA, and hence in the initiation of translation. Recent studies suggest it may offer protection from radiation. Pseudouridine synthases catalyse the isomerisation of uridine to pseudouridine (Psi) in a variety of RNA molecules, and may function as RNA chaperones. Pseudouridine is the most abundant modified nucleotide found in all cellular RNAs. There are four distinct families of pseudouridine synthases that share no global sequence similarity, but which do share the same fold of their catalytic domain(s) and uracil-binding site and are descended from a common molecular ancestor. The catalytic domain consists of two subdomains, each of which has an alpha+beta structure that has some similarity to the ferredoxin-like fold (note: some pseudouridine synthases contain additional domains). The active site is the most conserved structural region of the superfamily and is located between the two homologous domains.

Function and Homologs
- Functional Category: RNA
- Product: 23S Pseudouridine synthase
- Module: Pseudouridine synthase
- Closest homologous proteins: The top (max three) homologous proteins to this protein, as identified by BLAST searches.
- Equivalent E. coli / JCVI functional protein: [EG12609].
- Expression Level: High (not on excel sheet)
- Expression Level Hypothesis: Expression is high because pseudouridine synthases are the enzymes responsible for the most abundant posttranscriptional modification of cellular RNAs. These enzymes catalyze the site-specific isomerization of uridine residues that are already part of an RNA chain, and appear to employ both sequence and structural information to achieve site specificity. The function of it is not very clear, but it is expected to play a role in association with aminoacyl transferases during their interaction with tRNA, and hence in the initiation of translation. Recent studies suggest it may offer protection from radiation.
- Expression Level References and Description: Not located on either M. genitalium model data nor the E. coli proteome. The expression level is induced due to the function of the gene.
- Expression Time: At which time should the gene be expressed in the lifecycle of our organism? Right at beginning
- Expression Level Hypothesis: RNA is a critical component of producing new proteins: we need to produce more functioning RNA in order to synthesize later components, and it seems that pseudouridine synthases are the enzymes responsible for the most abundant posttranscriptional modification of cellular RNAs.
