Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 23S rRNA (adenine2503-C8)-methyltransferase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -51.300446 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
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. It contains an [4Fe-S] cluster [Giessing09]. Cfr is an plasmid-acquired methyltransferase that protects cells from the action of antibiotics [Giessing09]. The enzyme methylates adenosine by a radical mechanism with CH2 from S-adenosyl-L-methionine and retention of the hydrogen at C-8 of adenine2503 of 23S rRNA. It will also methylate 2-methyladenine2503 of 23S rRNA. cf. EC 188.8.131.52 (23S rRNA (adenine2503-C2)-methyltransferase).
