Isoleucine-tRNA ligase

Isoleucine-tRNA ligase

In enzymology, an isoleucine-tRNA ligase (EC number| is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:ATP + L-isoleucine + tRNAIle ightleftharpoons AMP + diphosphate + L-isoleucyl-tRNAIle

The 3 substrates of this enzyme are ATP, L-isoleucine, and tRNA(Ile), whereas its 3 products are AMP, diphosphate, and L-isoleucyl-tRNA(Ile).

This enzyme belongs to the family of ligases, specifically those forming carbon-oxygen bonds in aminoacyl-tRNA and related compounds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-isoleucine:tRNAIle ligase (AMP-forming). Other names in common use include isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase, isoleucyl-transfer ribonucleate synthetase, isoleucyl-transfer RNA synthetase, isoleucine-transfer RNA ligase, isoleucine-tRNA synthetase, and isoleucine translase. This enzyme participates in valine, leucine and isoleucine biosynthesis and aminoacyl-trna biosynthesis.
