MMSYN1_0390

Methionyl-tRNA formyltransferase
BBF10K_000175
source
Synthetic bacterium JCVI-Syn3.0

Attaches a formyl group to the free amino group of methionyl-tRNA(fMet). The formyl group appears to play a dual role in the initiator identity of N-formylmethionyl-tRNA by promoting its recognition by IF2 and preventing the misappropriation of this tRNA by the elongation apparatus.
