Names and origin

Protein namesRecommended name:
Methionyl-tRNA formyltransferase

EC=2.1.2.9
Gene names
Name:fmt
Ordered Locus Names:BA_4004, GBAA_4004, BAS3717
OrganismBacillus anthracis [Reference proteome] [HAMAP]
Taxonomic identifier1392 [NCBI]
Taxonomic lineageBacteriaFirmicutesBacilliBacillalesBacillaceaeBacillusBacillus cereus group

Protein attributes

Sequence length314 AA.
Sequence statusComplete.
Protein existenceEvidence at protein level

General annotation (Comments)

Function

Modifies the free amino group of the aminoacyl moiety of methionyl-tRNA(fMet). The formyl group appears to play a dual role in the initiator identity of N-formylmethionyl-tRNA by: (I) promoting its recognition by IF2 and (II) impairing its binding to EFTu-GTP By similarity. HAMAP-Rule MF_00182

Catalytic activity

10-formyltetrahydrofolate + L-methionyl-tRNA(fMet) = tetrahydrofolate + N-formylmethionyl-tRNA(fMet). HAMAP-Rule MF_00182

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the Fmt family.
