The CDKAL1:4Fe-4S complex methylthiolates N6-threonylcarbamoyladenosine-37 in several tRNAs (Arragain et al. 2010). The source of the methyl group is S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet). The source of the sulfur is unknown. The homologue in Bacillus subtilis, mtaB, catalyzes the same reaction (Arragain et al. 2010).
CDKAL1 is located on the cytosolic face of the endoplasmic reticulum therefore the reaction is presumed to occur in the cytosol (Brambillasca et al. 2012).
