Accepted name: 16S rRNA (adenine1408-N1)-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + adenine1408 in 16S rRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N1-methyladenine1408 in 16S rRNA
Other name(s): kanamycin-apramycin resistance methylase; 16S rRNA:m1A1408 methyltransferase; KamB; NpmA; 16S rRNA m1A1408 methyltransferase
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:16S rRNA (adenine1408-N1)-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme provides a panaminoglycoside-resistant nature through interference with the binding of aminoglycosides toward the A site of 16S rRNA through N1-methylation at position adenine1408 [4].
