Accepted name: S-adenosylmethionine:tRNA ribosyltransferase-isomerase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 7-aminomethyl-7-carbaguanosine34 in tRNA = L-methionine + adenine + epoxyqueuosine34 in tRNA

Glossary: 7-aminomethyl-7-carbaguanine = preQ1 = 7-aminomethyl-7-deazaguanine
epoxyqueosine = oQ
Other name(s): QueA enzyme; queuosine biosynthesis protein QueA
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:7-aminomethyl-7-deazaguanosine ribosyltransferase (ribosyl isomerizing; L-methionine, adenine releasing)
Comments: The reaction is a combined transfer and isomerization of the ribose moiety of S-adenosyl-L-methionine to the modified guanosine base in the wobble position in tRNAs specific for Tyr, His, Asp or Asn. It is part of the queuosine biosynthesis pathway.
