Archaeosine synthase Wikipedia
Archaeosine synthase (EC 184.108.40.206, ArcS, TgtA2, MJ1022 (gene), glutamine:preQ0-tRNA amidinotransferase) is an enzyme with systematic name L-glutamine:7-cyano-7-carbaguanine aminotransferase. This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction
L-glutamine + 7-cyano-7-carbaguanine15 in tRNA + H2O
L-glutamate + archaeine15
In Euryarchaeota the reaction is catalysed by ArcS.
