Family

Alpha-N-methyltransferase NTM1 (IPR008576)

Short name: MeTrfase_NTM1

Family relationships

None.

Description

All fungal and animal N-terminally methylated proteins contain a unique N-terminal motif, Met-(Ala/Pro/Ser)-Pro-Lys. Alpha-N-methyltransferase methylates the N terminus of target proteins containing the N-terminal motif [Ala/Pro/Ser]-Pro-Lys when the initiator Met is cleaved. It catalyses mono-, di- or tri-methylation of the exposed alpha-amino group of Ala or Ser residue in the [Ala/Ser]-Pro-Lys motif and mono- or di-methylation of Pro in the Pro-Pro-Lys motif [PMID: 20481588].
