16S rRNA 2'-O-ribose C1402 methyltransferase Inferred from experiment : rsmI

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 (cytidine1402-2′-O)-methyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: RsmI, YraL

Enzyme Commission Summary:
RsmI catalyses the 2-O-methylation of cytosine1402 and RsmH (EC catalyses the N4-methylation of cytosine1402 in 16S rRNA. Both methylations are necessary for efficient translation initiation at the UUG and GUG codons.
