Poxvirus poly(A) polymerase nucleotidyltransferase domain (IPR024231)

Short name: Pox_polyA_pol_nucTrfase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



Poly(A) polymerase (EC: catalyses template-independent extension of the 3'-end of a DNA or RNA strand by one nucleotide at a time. The Poxvirus enzyme creates the 3'(poly)A tail of mRNAs, and is a heterodimer of a catalytic and a regulatory subunit.

This entry represents the nucleotidyltransferase domain of the catalytic subunit [PMID: 16678106].
