ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.254

Accepted Name
Erythromycin 3''-O-methyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
  • S-adenosyl-L-methionine + erythromycin C <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + erythromycin A
  • S-adenosyl-L-methionine + erythromycin D <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + erythromycin B
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme methylates the 3 position of the mycarosyl moiety of erythromycin C, forming the most active form of the antibiotic, erythromycin A.
  • It can also methylate the precursor erythromycin D, forming erythromycin B, which is then converted to erythromycin A by EC 1.14.13.154.
