Regulation summary diagram for rlmB

Subunit composition of 23S rRNA 2'-O-ribose G2251 methyltransferase = [RlmB]2
         23S rRNA 2'-O-ribose G2251 methyltransferase monomer = RlmB

RlmB is the methyltransferase responsible for methylation of 23S rRNA at the 2'-O position of the ribose at the G2251 nucleotide [Lovgren01].

RlmB is a 2'O-methyltransferase that belongs to the SPOUT superfamily [Michel02]. A crystal structure of RlmB has been solved at 2.5 Å resolution. The N terminus is implicated in rRNA recognition, and the C-terminal domain contains a deep knot structure that encompasses the predicted SAM binding site [Michel02]. Computational docking analysis of the SAM binding site allowed inference of functionally important residues and a reaction mechanism [Kurowski03].

An rlmB deletion mutant does not show growth defects or defects in ribosome maturation [Lovgren01].

RlmB: "rRNA large subunit methyltransferase B" [Lovgren01]
