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: [myelin basic protein]-arginine N-methyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: myelin basic protein methylase I, protein methylase I, S-adenosyl-L-methionine:[myelin-basic-protein]-arginine ω-N-methyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Forms the omega-N-monomethyl-, omega-N,omega-N-dimethyl- and omega N,omega'-N-dimethyl-arginine derivatives. The name protein methylase I is misleading since it has been used for a number of enzymes with different specificities. Formerly EC 188.8.131.52.
