IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: 25S rRNA (uracil2634-N3)-methyltransferase

Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + uracil2634 in 25S rRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N3-methyluracil2634 in 25S rRNA

Other name(s): BMT5

Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:tRNA (uracil2634-N3)-methyltransferase

Comments: The enzyme, described from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is involved in ribosome biogenesis.
