Name  tRNA-splicing ligase, RtcB Short Name  RtcB
Type  Family Description  RctB is a RNA ligase that mediates the joining of broken tRNA-like stem-loop structures in case of tRNA damage. It probably participates to tRNA restriction-repair by ligating broken tRNA-like stem-loop structures with 2',3'-cyclic phosphate and 5'-OH ends to form a splice junction with a 2'-OH, 3',5'-phosphodiester [].
