Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 23S rRNA (adenine2503-C2)-methyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: RlmN, YfgB, Cfr
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -49.4281 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Contains an [4Fe-4S] cluster [Yan10]. RlmN is an endogenous enzyme used by the cell to refine functions of the ribosome in protein synthesis [Yan10]. The enzyme methylates adenosine by a radical mechanism with CH2 from the S-adenosyl-L-methionine and retention of the hydrogen at C-2 of adenosine2503 of 23S rRNA. It will also methylate 8-methyladenosine2503 of 23S rRNA. This enzyme is a member of the 'AdoMet radical ' (radical SAM) family. S-Adenosyl-L-methionine acts as both a radical generator and as the source of the appended methyl group.
