Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0008173 - RNA methyltransferase activity

Definition: Catalysis of the transfer of a methyl group from a donor to a nucleoside residue in an RNA molecule.

Note that the methyl donor is usually S-adenosyl-L-methionine, but there is at least one exception (see GO:0030698).
