Homologous Superfamily

D-Tyr tRNAtyr deacylase-like domain superfamily (IPR023509)

Short name: DTD-like_dom_sf


This homodimeric enzyme appears able to cleave any D-amino acid (and glycine, which does not have distinct D/L forms) from charged tRNA. The name reflects characterisation with respect to D-Tyr on tRNA(Tyr) as established in the literature, but substrate specificity seems much broader.

This superfamily represents the structural domain, consisting of a beta-barrel closed on one side by a beta-sheet lid [PMID: 11568181].
