Accepted name: 23S rRNA (uracil1939-C5)-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + uracil1939 in 23S rRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 5-methyluracil1939 in 23S rRNA
Other name(s): RumA; RNA uridine methyltransferase A; YgcA
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:23S rRNA (uracil1939-C5)-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme specifically methylates uracil1939 at C5 in 23S rRNA [1]. The enzyme contains an [4Fe-4S] cluster coordinated by four conserved cysteine residues [2].
