Ubiquinone biosynthesis O-methyltransferase (IPR010233)

Short name: UbiG_MeTrfase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This entry represents an O-methyltransferase, which is believed to act at two points in the ubiquinone biosynthetic pathway in bacteria (UbiG) and mitochondria (COQ3) [PMID: 11583838, PMID: 10419476]. A separate methylase (MenG/UbiE) catalyses the single C-methylation step. The most commonly used names for genes in this family do not indicate whether this gene is an O-methyl, or C-methyl transferase.
