ribosomal protein L3 N5-glutamine methyltransferase
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + [ribosomal protein L3]-L-glutamine = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + [ribosomal protein L3]-N5-methyl-L-glutamine
S-adenosyl-L-methionine:[ribosomal protein L3]-L-glutamine (N5-glutamine)-methyltransferase
Modifies the glutamine residue in the glycylglycylglutamine (GGQ) motif of ribosomal protein L3 (Gln150 in the protein from the bacterium Escherichia coli). The enzyme does not act on peptide chain release factor 1 or 2.
