FunFam 100770: Methyltransferase

There are 1 EC terms in this cluster

Please note: EC annotations are assigned to the full protein sequence rather than individual protein domains. Since a given protein can contain multiple domains, it is possible that some of the annotations below come from additional domains that occur in the same protein, but have been classified elsewhere in CATH.

Note: The search results have been sorted with the annotations that are found most frequently at the top of the list. The results can be filtered by typing text into the search box at the top of the table.

EC Term Annotations Evidence
2-polyprenyl-6-hydroxyphenol methylase. [EC:]
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 3-(all-trans-polyprenyl)benzene-1,2-diol = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 2-methoxy-6-(all-trans-polyprenyl)phenol.
  • UbiG catalyzes both methylation steps in ubiquinone biosynthesis in Escherichia coli.
  • The second methylation is classified as EC
  • In eukaryotes Coq3 catalyzes the two methylation steps in ubiquinone biosynthesis.
  • However, while the second methylation is common to both enzymes, the first methylation by Coq3 occurs at a different position within the pathway, and thus involves a different substrate and is classified as EC
  • The substrate of the eukaryotic enzyme (3,4-dihydroxy-5-all-trans- polyprenylbenzoate) differs by an additional carboxylate moiety.
