|23S rRNA (adenine(2503)-C(8))-methyltransferase.
|2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine + adenine(2503) in 23S rRNA + 2 reduced [2Fe-2S] ferredoxin <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + L-methionine + 5'-deoxyadenosine + 8-methyladenine(2503) in 23S rRNA + 2 oxidized [2Fe-2S] ferredoxin|
- This enzyme is a member of the 'AdoMet radical' (radical SAM) family.
- S-adenosyl-L-methionine acts as both a radical generator and as the
source of the appended methyl group.
- Cfr is an plasmid-acquired methyltransferase that protects cells from
the action of antibiotics.
- The enzyme methylates adenosine at position 2503 of 23S rRNA by a
radical mechanism, transferring a CH(2) group from S-adenosyl-L-
methionine while retaining the hydrogen at the C-8 position of the
- Cfr first transfers an CH(2) group to a conserved cysteine (Cys(338)
in Staphylococcus aureus), the generated radical from a second
S-adenosyl-L-methionine then attacks the methyl group, exctracting a
- The formed radical forms a covalent intermediate with the adenine
group of the tRNA.
- The enzyme will also methylate 2-methyladenine produced by the action
of EC 22.214.171.124.
