Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Delta 2-isopentenyl pyrophosphate:tRNA isopentenyl transferase; required for biosynthesis of isopentenyladenosine in mitochondrial and cytoplasmic tRNAs; also has a role in tRNA gene-mediated silencing; gene encodes two isozymic forms; converts to a prion form, prion conversion contributes to azole antifungal resistance by upregulating ergosterol biosynthesis; homolog of human TRIT1, a mutation in which is associated with severe combined respiratory chain defects [Source:SGD;Acc:S000005800]


Chromosome XV: 837,674-838,960 forward strand.
