Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 16S rRNA (guanine1405-N7)-methyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: methyltransferase Sgm, m7G1405 Mtase, Sgm Mtase, Sgm, sisomicin-gentamicin methyltransferase, sisomicin-gentamicin methylase, GrmA, RmtB, RmtC, ArmA

Taxonomic Range: Bacteria

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -24.765076Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme specifically methylates guanine1405 at C7 in 16S rRNA. The enzyme from the antibiotic-producing bacterium Micromonospora zionensis methylates guanine1405 in 16S rRNA to 7-methylguanine, thereby rendering the ribosome resistant to 4,6-disubstituted deoxystreptamine aminoglycosides, which include gentamicins and kanamycins [Savic09].
