EC 2.1.1.206     
Accepted name: tRNA (cytidine56-2′-O)-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + cytidine56 in tRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 2′-O-methylcytidine56 in tRNA
Other name(s): aTrm56; tRNA ribose 2′-O-methyltransferase aTrm56; PAB1040 (gene name)
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:tRNA (cytidine56-2′-O)-methyltransferase
Comments: The archaeal enzyme specifically catalyses the S-adenosyl-L-methionine dependent 2′-O-ribose methylation of cytidine at position 56 in tRNA transcripts.
