The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 16S rRNA (guanine1207-N2)-methyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: m2G1207 methyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme reacts well with 30S subunits reconstituted from 16S RNA transcripts and 30S proteins but is almost inactive with the corresponding free RNA [Tscherne99]. The enzyme specifically methylates guanine1207 at N2 in 16S rRNA.
