||This enzyme, characterized from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, methylates the the δ-nitrogen atom of arginine residues within proteins. Among its substrates are Arg67 of the ribosomal protein L12. cf. EC 126.96.36.1999, type I protein arginine methyltransferase, EC 188.8.131.520, type II protein arginine methyltransferase, and EC 184.108.40.2061, type III protein arginine methyltransferase.
