5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine modification at tRNA U34; cmnm(5) addition to tRNA-s(2)U34, forming (with subsequent or interdependent MnmG action) cmnm(5)s(2)U34-tRNA, an intermediate in mnm(5)s(2)U34-tRNA synthesis
|Function from GO|

GTPase activity is essential for modification function. Mutants are hypomodified for s(2)U34 in tRNA(Lys). The carboxymethylaminomethyl donor is unknown. U34 is the wobble base.mnmE has proposed to be epistatic to mnmG, preceding it in the pathway (Bregeon, 2001), but Yim (2000) suggest that the MnmE and MnmG activities are interdependent, not sequential. MnmG(GidA) and MnmE form a heterotetrameric complex (Yim, 2006).
