- Tryptophan-tRNA ligase
enzymology, a tryptophan-tRNA ligase (EC number|220.127.116.11) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:ATP + L-tryptophan + tRNATrp AMP + diphosphate + L-tryptophyl-tRNATrp
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-tryptophan:tRNATrp ligase (AMP-forming). Other names in common use include tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetase, L-tryptophan-tRNATrp ligase (AMP-forming), tryptophanyl-transfer ribonucleate synthetase, tryptophanyl-transfer ribonucleic acid synthetase, tryptophanyl-transfer RNA synthetase, tryptophanyl ribonucleic synthetase, tryptophanyl-transfer ribonucleic synthetase, tryptophanyl-tRNA synthase, tryptophan translase, and TrpRS. This enzyme participates in tryptophan metabolismand aminoacyl-trna biosynthesis.
