23S rRNA (uracil(1939)-C(5))-methyltransferase RlmD (IPR001566)

Short name: 23S_rRNA_MeTrfase_RlmD

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This family represents the RlmD (also known as rumA / ygcA) RNA uridine methyltransferase. In E. coli, methyltransferases are responsible for converting uridine to thymidine in rRNA and tRNAs. Among them, TrmA is responsible for tRNA U54 methylation. RlmD (assigned as YgcA previously) was first identified as a methyltransferase through its homology to the TrmA family. RlmD was then found acting as a methyltransferase on the 23S RNA for the conserved U1939. [PMID: 11779873, PMID: 12907714].
