Modomics - A Database of RNA Modifications

Full name: 18S rRNA (guanine-N(7))-methyltransferase
Synonym: MERM1, BUD23
GI: 21552765
Structures: | |
Complex: WBSCR22-TRMT112
Enzyme type: methyltransferase
Position of modification - modification: s:1639(1338) - m7G


WBSCR22 is required for N7 methylation at nucleotide G1639 of 18S rRNA. WBSCR22 interacts directly with TRMT112, forming a heterodimer, and that the latter protein is required for the metabolic stability of the former. Enzyme is required for distinct pre-rRNA processing reactions leading to synthesis of 18S rRNA, and it has been demonstrated that in human cells, as in budding yeast, ribosome biogenesis requires the presence of the modification enzyme rather than its RNA-modifying catalytic activity.
