Official Full Name
dihydrouridine synthase 2-like, SMM1 homolog (S. cerevisiae)
Dihydrouridine synthase catalyzes reduction of the 5,6-double bond of a uridine residue on the displacement loop of;tRNA. The resultant modified base, 5,6-dihydrouridine, appears to increase the conformational flexibility and dynamic;motion of tRNA (Kato et al., 2005 (PubMed 15994936)).
