Protein

Methionyl-tRNA formyltransferase

Gene

fmt

Organism
Staphylococcus aureus (strain MRSA252)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Protein inferred from homologyi

Functioni

Attaches a formyl group to the free amino group of methionyl-tRNA(fMet). The formyl group appears to play a dual role in the initiator identity of N-formylmethionyl-tRNA by promoting its recognition by IF2 and preventing the misappropriation of this tRNA by the elongation apparatus.UniRule annotation

Catalytic activityi

10-formyltetrahydrofolate + L-methionyl-tRNA(fMet) = tetrahydrofolate + N-formylmethionyl-tRNA(fMet).UniRule annotation
