Accepted name: Enterobacter ribonuclease
Reaction: RNA containing adenosine-cytidine + H2O = an [RNA fragment]-3′-cytidine-3′-phosphate + a 5′-a hydroxy-adenosine -3′-[RNA fragment] (overall reaction)
(1a) RNA containing adenosine-cytidine = an [RNA fragment]-3′-cytidine-2′,3′-cyclophosphate + a 5′-a hydroxy-adenosine -3′-[RNA fragment]
(1b) an [RNA fragment]-3′-cytidine-2′,3′-cyclophosphate + H2O = an [RNA fragment]-3′-cytidine-3′-phosphate
Systematic name: [RNA]-adenosine-cytidine 5′-hydroxy-adenosoine ribonucleotide-3′-[RNA fragment]-lyase (cyclicizing; [RNA fragment]-3′-cytidine-2′,3′-cyclophosphate-forming and hydrolysing)
Comments: Preference for cleavage at Cp-A bonds. Homopolymers of A, U or G are not hydrolysed. CpG bonds are hydrolysed less well and there is no detectable hydrolysis between two purines or two pyrimidines. The enzyme catalyses a two-stage endonucleolytic cleavage. The first reaction produces 5′-hydroxy-phosphooligonucletides and 3′-phosphooligonucleotides ending a with 2′,3′-cyclic phosphodiester, which are released from the enzyme. The enzyme then hydrolyses these cyclic compounds in a second reaction that takes place only when all the susceptible 3′,5′-phosphodiester bonds have been cyclised. The second reaction is a reversal of the first reaction using the hydroxyl group of water instead of the 5′-hydroxyl group of ribose. The overall process is that of a phosphorus-oxygen lyase followed by hydrolysis to form the 3′-nucleotides.
