Accepted name: erythromycin 3′′-O-methyltransferase
Reaction: (1) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + erythromycin C = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + erythromycin A
(2) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + erythromycin D = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + erythromycin B

Other name(s): EryG
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:erythromycin C 3′′-O-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme methylates the 3 position of the mycarosyl moiety of erythromycin C, forming the most active form of the antibiotic, erythromycin A. It can also methylate the precursor erythromycin D, forming erythromycin B, which is then converted to erythromycin A by EC, erythromycin 12 hydroxylase.
