- MRNA (guanine-N7-)-methyltransferase
enzymology, a mRNA (guanine-N7-)-methyltransferase (EC number|220.127.116.11) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:S-adenosyl-L-methionine + G(5')pppR-RNA S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + m7G(5')pppR-RNA (mRNA containing an N7-methylguanine cap)
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically those transferring one-carbon group methyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is S-adenosyl-L-methionine:mRNA (guanine-N7-)-methyltransferase. Other names in common use include messenger ribonucleate guanine 7-methyltransferase, guanine-7-methyltransferase, messenger RNA guanine 7-methyltransferase, and S-adenosyl-L-methionine:mRNA (guanine-7-N-)-methyltransferase.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|56941-25-4."
