Accepted name: protein N-terminal monomethyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + N-terminal-(A,P,S)PK-[protein] = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N-terminal-N-methyl-N-(A,P,S)PK-[protein]
Other name(s): NRMT2 (gene name); METTL11B (gene name); N-terminal monomethylase
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:N-terminal-(A,P,S)PK-[protein] monomethyltransferase
Comments: This enzyme methylates the N-terminus of target proteins containing the N-terminal motif [Ala/Pro/Ser]-Pro-Lys after the initiator L-methionine is cleaved. In contrast to EC, protein N-terminal methyltransferase, the protein only adds one methyl group to the N-terminal.
