EC 2.1.1.208     
Accepted name: 23S rRNA (uridine2479-2′-O)-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + uridine2479 in 23S rRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 2′-O-methyluridine2479 in 23S rRNA
Other name(s): AviRb
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:23S rRNA (uridine2479-2′-O)-methyltransferase
Comments: Streptomyces viridochromogenes produces the antibiotic avilamycin A which binds to the 50S ribosomal subunit to inhibit protein synthesis. To protect itself from the antibiotic, Streptomyces viridochromogenes utilizes two methyltransferases, 23S rRNA (uridine2479-2′-O)-methyltransferase and EC 2.1.1.209 [23S rRNA (guanine2535-N1)-methyltransferase], whose actions confer avilamycin resistance to the RNA.
