InterPro : IPR017705

Name  Ribonuclease Y Short Name  Ribonuclease_Y
Type  Family Description  Ribonuclease Y is an endoribonuclease that initiates mRNA decay []. The member from Bacillus subtilis, YmdA, has been shown to be involved in turnover of yitJ riboswitch []. It also has been shown in Staphylococcus aureus that it catalyses the hydrolysis of both 2',3'-cyclic AMP and 2',3'-cyclic GMP into 3'-AMP and 3'-GMP, respectively, at the 3'-terminal of RNA [, ].
