Accepted name: tRNA nucleotidyltransferase
Reaction: tRNAn+1 + phosphate = tRNAn + a nucleoside diphosphate
Other name(s): phosphate-dependent exonuclease; RNase PH; ribonuclease PH
Systematic name: tRNA:phosphate nucleotidyltransferase
Comments: Brings about the final exonucleolytic trimming of the 3′-terminus of tRNA precursors in Escherichia coli by a phosphorolysis, producing a mature 3′-terminus on tRNA and nucleoside diphosphate. Not identical with EC polyribonucleotide nucleotidyltransferase.
