Enzyme type: methyltransferase
Position of modification - modification: m:0 - m7GpppN


AdoMet is the methyl group donor. Responsible for methylating the 5'cap structure of mRNAs. Nucleotide 0 is a cap. Beside its capping function, Abd1 has also a function in transcription by RNA polymerase II. This transcriptional function is independent of methylase activity. The m7G has a positively charge at neutral pH.
