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 for tRNA (cytidine32/uridine32-2′-O)-methyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms for YfhQ, tRNA:Cm32/Um32 methyltransferase, TrMet(Xm32), TrmJ

Enzyme Commission Primary Name for tRNA (cytidine32/guanosine34-2′-O)-methyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms for Trm7p

Enzyme Commission Summary for
In Escherichia coli YfhQ is the only methyltransferase responsible for the formation of 2'-O-methylcytidine32 in tRNA. No methylation of cytosine34 in tRNALeu(CAA). In vitro the enzyme 2'-O-methylates cytidine34 of tRNASer1 and uridine32 of tRNAGln2.

Enzyme Commission Summary for
The enzyme from Saccharomyces cerevisiae catalyses the formation of 2'-O-methylnucleotides at positions 32 and 34 of the yeast tRNAPhe, tRNATrp and, possibly, tRNALeu.
