EC 2.1.1.173     
Accepted name: 23S rRNA (guanine2445-N2)-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + guanine2445 in 23S rRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N2-methylguanine2445 in 23S rRNA
Other name(s): ycbY (gene name); rlmL (gene name)
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:23S rRNA (guanine2445-N2)-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme methylates 23S rRNA in vitro, assembled 50S subunits are not a substrate [1]. The enzyme specifically methylates guanine2445 at N2 in 23S rRNA.
