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 (adenine1518-N6/adenine1519-N6)-dimethyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: S-adenosylmethionine-6-N',N'-adenosyl (rRNA) dimethyltransferase, KsgA, ksgA methyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Summary:
KsgA introduces the most highly conserved ribosomal RNA modification, the dimethylation of adenine1518 and adenine1519 in 16S rRNA. Strains lacking the methylase are resistant to kasugamycin [Helser71].
