Ribosomal RNA small subunit methyltransferase H (IPR002903)

Short name: RsmH

Family relationships

None.

Description

RsmH (previously known as MraW) is a methyltransferase responsible for one of the two methylations (N4-methylation) of C1402 in Escherichia coli 16S rRNA. The N4, 2'-O-dimethylcytidine (m4Cm) at position 1402 of the 16S rRNA directly interacts with the P-site codon of the mRNA. These conserved methyl-modifications may play a role in fine-tuning the shape and function of the P-site, thus increasing decoding fidelity [PMID: 19965768].
