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.
