Accepted name: peptidyltransferase
Reaction: peptidyl-tRNA1 + aminoacyl-tRNA2 = tRNA1 + peptidyl(aminoacyl-tRNA2)
Other name(s): transpeptidase; ribosomal peptidyltransferase
Systematic name: peptidyl-tRNA:aminoacyl-tRNA N-peptidyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme is a ribozyme. Two non-equivlant ribonucleoprotein subunits operate in non-concerted fashion in peptide elongation. The small subunit forms the mRNA-binding machinery and decoding center, the large subunit performs the main ribosomal catalytic function in the peptidyl-transferase center.
