Protein Summary

KamB from Streptomyces sp. DSM 40477

Full name: rRNA adenine N-1-methyltransferase
Synonym: aminoglycoside-resistance 16S rRNA methyltransferase
GI: 85813531
Orf: kamB
COG: COG4106
UniProt: P25920
Structures: | 3MQ2 |
Enzyme type: methyltransferase
Position of modification - modification: s:1408(1408) - m1A


KamB catalyzes the formation of m1A at position 1408 in helix 44 of 16 rRNA and provides panaminoglycoside-resistant nature through interference with the binding of aminoglycosides to the A site of 16S rRNA. Plasmid–mediated NpmA present in certain pathogenic E. coli has the same function. Methylation site was determined for E. coli rRNA.
