Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + adenine645 in 25S rRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N1-methyladenine645 in 25S rRNA
Other name(s): 25S rRNA m1A645 methyltransferase; Rrp8
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:25S rRNA (adenine645-N1)-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme is found in eukaryotes. The adenine position refers to tRNA the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, in which the enzyme is important for ribosome biogenesis.
