Modomics - A Database of RNA Modifications

Full name: Ribosomal RNA small subunit methyltransferase H
Synonym: mraW
GI: 42560200
COG: COG0275
UniProt: P60390
Structures: | 3TKA |
Enzyme type: methyltransferase
Position of modification - modification: s:1402(1402) - m4Cm


RsmH methylates N4 atom of C1402 (m4C) within a heavily hypermodified region of helix 44 in the 3’-terminal region of 16S rRNA. AdoMet is the methyl group donor. This enzyme is conserved in almost all species of bacteria. Together with 2’-O-methyltransferase RsmI, it allows the formation of the final product m4Cm. Phylogenetic profiling (co-occurrence) reavealed probable biochemical links between RsmH and translation factors IF2, RF1 and LepA.
