Accepted name: tRNA (adenine58-N1)-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + adenine58 in tRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N1-methyladenine58 in tRNA
Other name(s): tRNA m1A58 methyltransferase; tRNA (m1A58) methyltransferase; TrmI; tRNA (m1A58) Mtase; Rv2118cp; Gcd10p-Gcd14p; Trm61p-Trm6p
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:tRNA (adenine58-N1)-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme specifically methylates adenine58 in tRNA. The methylation of A58 is critical for maintaining the stability of initiator tRNAMet in yeast [3].
