Official Full Name
leucine carboxyl methyltransferase 2
The protein encoded by this intronless gene belongs to the highly variable methyltransferase superfamily. This gene is the inferred homolog of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae carboxymethyltransferase gene PPM2 that is essential for the synthesis of the hypermodified guanosine Wybutosine (yW).
