Short name: Pox/kineto_cap_MeTfrase

Family relationships

Description

Members of this family are mRNA (nucleoside-2'-O-)-methyltransferases (EC:2.1.1.57). They are found in Poxvirus and in kinetoplastids (a group of single-cell flagellate protozoa). These enzymes are required for the formation of the 5' cap structure of mRNA [PMID: 1313572].
