The Saccharomyces cerevisiae Pus7 protein was recently characterized as a novel RNA:pseudouridine (Psi)-synthase acting at position 35 in U2 snRNA. However, U2 snRNA was the only potential substrate tested for this enzyme. In this work, we demonstrated that although Pus7p is responsible for the formation of only one of the six Psi residues present in yeast UsnRNAs, it catalyzes U to Psi conversion at position 13 in cytoplasmic tRNAs and at position 35 in pre-tRNA(Tyr).
