Summary: tRNase Z endonuclease
The Pfam group coordinates the annotation of Pfam families in Wikipedia, but we have not yet assigned a Wikipedia article to this family. If you think that a particular Wikipedia article provides good annotation, please let us know.
This tab holds the annotation information that is stored in the Pfam database. As we move to using Wikipedia as our main source of annotation, the contents of this tab will be gradually replaced by the Wikipedia tab.
tRNase Z endonuclease Provide feedback
This is family of tRNase Z enzymes, that are closely related structurally to the Lactamase_B family members. tRNase Z is the endonuclease that is involved in tRNA 3'-end maturation through removal of the 3'-trailer sequences from tRNA precursors. The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe contains two candidate tRNase Zs encoded by two essential genes. The first, Q10155 is targeted to the nucleus and has an SV40 nuclear localisation signal at its N-terminus, consisting of four consecutive arginine and lysine residues between residues 208 and 211 (KKRK) that is critical for the NLS function. The second, P87168 is targeted to the mitochondria, with an N-terminal mitochondrial targeting signal within the first 38 residues .

This domain is found in the RNase Z enzymes, which are closely related structurally to the Lactamase B family members. tRNase Z (ribonuclease Z) is the endonuclease that is involved in tRNA 3'-end maturation through removal of the 3'-trailer sequences from tRNA precursors. The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe contains two candidate tRNase Zs encoded by two essential genes. The first, Trz1, is targeted to the nucleus and has an SV40 nuclear localisation signal at its N terminus, consisting of four consecutive arginine and lysine residues between residues 208 and 211 (KKRK) that is critical for the NLS function. The second, Trz2, is targeted to the mitochondria, with an N-terminal mitochondrial targeting signal within the first 38 residues [PUBMED:21208191].

This superfamily of enzymes including beta-lactamases, thiolesterases, members of the glyoxalase II family that catalyse the hydrolysis of S-D-lactoyl-glutathione to form glutathione and D-lactic acid all bind two ions of zinc. An additional family of competence proteins essential for natural transformation do not appear to bind zinc, and might be a transporter involved in DNA uptake.
The clan contains the following 8 members:Beta_lactamase3 Lactamase_B Lactamase_B_2 Lactamase_B_3 Lactamase_B_4 Lactamase_B_5 Lactamase_B_6 PDEase_II
We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request
