Definition of Polynucleotide Adenylyltransferase Gamma

Encoded by human PAPOLG Gene (Poly A polymerase Family), 736-aa 83-kDa nuclear Polynucleotide Adenylyltransferase Gamma is a polymerase that catalyzes template-independent extension of the 3 prime end of an RNA strand by nonspecific and CPSF/AAUAAA-dependent polyadenylation activity. PAPOLG shares 60% amino acid identity with PAPOLA as well as similar organization of structural and functional domains. PAPOLG catalyzes post-transcriptional adenylation of several small RNAs: SRP RNA, nuclear 7SK RNA, U2 small nuclear RNA, and ribosomal 5S RNA. (NCI)

Polynucleotide Adenylyltransferase Gamma is from the group
