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
