Position of modification - modification: l:747(747) - m5U


RlmC (formerly RumB) methylates the conserved U747 in the loop of helix 35 of domain II of the large subunit rRNA. Recombinant E.coli RlmC is inactive in vitro. However, its archaeal recombinant RlmC paralog (P. abyssi PAB0760) is active on transcript corresponding to a fragment of rRNA encompassing the hairpin 33-35. AdoMet is the methyl group donor.
