Accepted name: arginine Nω-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + L-arginine = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + Nω-methyl-L-arginine
Other name(s): sznE (gene name); stzE (gene name)
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:L-arginine Nω-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Streptomyces achromogenes subsp. streptozoticus, participates in the biosynthesis of the glucosamine-nitrosourea antibiotic streptozotocin.
