ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.207

Accepted Name
tRNA (cytidine(34)-2'-O)-methyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
tRNA (cytidine(34)/5-carboxymethylaminomethyluridine(34)-2'-O)- methyltransferase.
tRNA methyltransferase L.
Reaction catalysed
  • S-adenosyl-L-methionine + cytidine(34) in tRNA <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 2'-O-methylcytidine(34) in tRNA
  • S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 5-carboxymethylaminomethyluridine(34) in tRNA(Leu) <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 5-carboxymethylaminomethyl-2'-O-methyluridine(34) in tRNA(Leu)
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from Escherichia coli catalyzes the 2'-O-methylation of cytidine or 5-carboxymethylaminomethyluridine at the wobble position at nucleotide 34 in tRNA(Leu)CmAA and tRNA(Leu)cmnm(5)UmAA.
  • The enzyme is selective for the two tRNA(Leu) isoacceptors and only methylates these when they present the correct anticodon loop sequence and modification pattern.
  • Specifically, YibK requires a pyrimidine nucleoside at position 34, it has a clear preference for an adenosine at position 35, and it fails to methylate without prior addition of the N(6)-(isopentenyl)- 2-methylthioadenosine modification at position 37.
