Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion TypeSimple ReactionsChemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By SubstrateMacromolecule ReactionsPolynucleotide-ReactionsRNA-ReactionstRNA-Reactions

EC Number:

Enzymes and Genes:
tRNA m1G37 methyltransferaseInferred from experiment: trmD

Supersedes EC number:

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, 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. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: tRNA (guanine37-N1)-methyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: TrmD, tRNA (m1G37) methyltransferase, transfer RNA (m1G37) methyltransferase, Trm5p, TRMT5, tRNA-(N1G37) methyltransferase, MJ0883 (gene name)

Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme is important for the maintenance of the correct reading frame during translation. Unlike TrmD from Escherichia coli, which recognizes the G36pG37 motif preferentially, the human enzyme (encoded by TRMT5) also methylates inosine at position 37 [Brule04]. .
