Literature associating CMTR2 and brain stem infarction
Cap-specific mRNA (nucleoside-2'-O-)-methyltransferase 2; S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent methyltransferase that mediates mRNA cap2 2'-O-ribose methylation to the 5'-cap structure of mRNAs. Methylates the ribose of the second nucleotide of a m(7)GpppG-capped mRNA and small nuclear RNA (snRNA) (cap0) to produce m(7)GpppRmpNm (cap2). Recognizes a guanosine cap on RNA independently of its N(7) methylation status. Display cap2 methylation on both cap0 and cap1. Displays a preference for cap1 RNAs; Seven-beta-strand methyltransferase motif containing
Synonyms: CMTR2, CMTR2p, hCMTR2, H3BNZ8, H3BR19 ...
