Taw22 from Pyrococcus abyssi - protein summary.
tRNA (guanine(37)-N1)-methyltransferase Trm5a/Taw22
Position of modification - modification:
t:37 - mimG
In P. abyssi two paralogs capable of forming m1G37 are present: Trm5b and Taw22 (Trm5a, a bifunctional enzyme). Under identical experimental conditions Taw22 is more selective for G37-containing tRNAPhe.
Taw22 is a tRNA:m1G/imG2 methyltransferase, acting on two chemically distinct guanosine derivatives located at the same position of tRNAPhe, unique to certain archaea. It does not have homologs in eukaryotes.
