Accepted name: peptide chain release factor N5-glutamine methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + [peptide chain release factor 1 or 2]-L-glutamine = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + [peptide chain release factor 1 or 2]-N5-methyl-L-glutamine
Other name(s): N5-glutamine S-adenosyl-L-methionine dependent methyltransferase; N5-glutamine MTase; HemK; PrmC
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:[peptide chain release factor 1 or 2]-L-glutamine (N5-glutamine)-methyltransferase
Comments: Modifies the glutamine residue in the universally conserved glycylglycylglutamine (GGQ) motif of peptide chain release factor, resulting in almost complete loss of release activity.
