Regulation summary diagram for rimL

RimL is the acetyl transferase that acetylates the Nα-terminal serine residue of ribosomal protein L12, converting it into its modified form, L7 [Isono81, Tanaka89a, Miao07]. Acetylation of L12 does not appear to be essential for its function [Isono81].

RimL can also acetylate a mutant ribosomal protein L12 which contains alanine instead of serine at the N-terminal position (after cleavage of the leading methionine); substitution of the adjacent amino acid with aspartate leads to lower catalytic efficiency [Miao07].

RimL is similar to the MccE acetyltransferase that acetylates and thereby provides resistance to processed microcin C (McC). RimL, but not RimI or RimJ, contributes to E. coli's basal level of resistance to McC and some of its analogs [Kazakov14].

A rimL mutant lacks ribosomal protein L7, the acetylated form of ribosomal protein L12 [Isono81].

RimL shows similarity to RimJ [Tanaka89a].
