EC Tubulin--tyrosine ligase. [-]    

Reaction: Atp + detyrosinated alpha-tubulin + L-tyrosine = alpha-tubulin + adp + phosphate.

detyrosinated alpha-tubulin
Molecule diagrams generated from .mol files obtained from the KEGG ftp site.

Other name(s): Ttl.
Comments: L-tyrosine is linked via a peptide bond to the C-terminus of de-tyrosinated alpha-tubulin (des-Tyr(omega)-alpha-tubulin). The enzyme is highly specific for alpha-tubulin and moderately specific for Atp and L-tyrosine. L-phenylalanine and 3,4-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine are transferred but with higher Km values.
