Short name: rRNA_MeTrfase_gammaproteobac

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


The ribosomal RNA large subunit methyltransferase E (EC:2.1.1) methylates the 23S rRNA. It specifically methylates the uridine in position 2552 of 23s rRNA in the 50S particle using S-adenosyl-L-methionine as a substrate. It was previously known as cell division protein ftsJ.
