EC 2.1.1.216     
Accepted name: tRNA (guanine26-N2)-dimethyltransferase
Reaction: 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine + guanine26 in tRNA = 2 S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N2-dimethylguanine26 in tRNA
Other name(s): Trm1p; TRM1; tRNA (m22G26)dimethyltransferase
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:tRNA (guanine26-N2)-dimethyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme dissociates from its tRNA substrate between the two consecutive methylation reactions. In contrast to EC 2.1.1.215, tRNA (guanine26-N2/guanine27-N2)-dimethyltransferase, this enzyme does not catalyse the methylation of guanine27 in tRNA.
