EC 2.1.1.301     
Accepted name: cypemycin N-terminal methyltransferase
Reaction: 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine + N-terminal L-alanine-[cypemycin] = 2 S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N-terminal N,N-dimethyl-L-alanine-[cypemycin]
Other name(s): CypM
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:N-terminal L-alanine-[cypemycin] N-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Streptomyces sp. OH-4156, can methylate a variety of linear oligopeptides, cyclic peptides such as nisin and haloduracin, and the ε-amino group of lysine [2]. Cypemycin is a peptide antibiotic, a member of the linaridins, a class of posttranslationally modified ribosomally synthesized peptides.
