IPP transferase (IPR018022)

Short name: IPT

Family relationships


tRNA dimethylallyltransferase alternative names include delta(2)-isopentenylpyrophosphate transferase, IPP transferral and 2-methylthio-N6-isopentyladenosine tRNA modification enzyme. This enzyme catalyses the first step in the modification of an adenosine near the anticodon to 2-methylthio-N6-isopentyladenosine.

Plants have two classes of isopentenyltransferases (IPTs): ATP/ADP isopentenyltransferases (IPT1, 3, 4-8) and tRNA IPTs (IPT2 and 9) [PMID: 17062755]. Both types are included in this family.
