PFAM accession number:PF04072
Interpro abstract (IPR007213):

This entry includes a group of methyltransferases such as leucine carboxyl methyltransferase 1 (known as Ppm1 in yeast and LCMT1 in mammals), leucine carboxyl methyltransferase 2 (Ppm2/LCMT2) and O-methyltransferase TcmP.

Ppm1 regulates the activity of serine/threonine phosphatase 2A (PP2A) through methylation of the C-terminal leucine residue of the catalytic subunit of PP2A [ (PUBMED:10600115) (PUBMED:11697862) (PUBMED:11060018) ]. This affects the heteromultimeric composition of PP2A which in turn affects protein recognition and substrate specificity. Like many other methyltransferases Ppm1 uses S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) as the methyl donor. Ppm1 contains the common SAM-dependent methyltransferase core fold, with various insertions and additions creating a specific PP2A binding site [ (PUBMED:14660564) ]. Ppm2, a homologue of Ppm1, is a S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent methyltransferase that acts as a component of the wybutosine biosynthesis pathway, which is part of tRNA modification [ (PUBMED:16642040) ].

Streptomyces glaucescens TcmP is an O-methyltransferase that catalyses the methylation of the C-9 carboxy group of tetracenomycin E (TCM E) to yield TCM A2, which is then further processed to produce the antibiotic TCM C [ (PUBMED:11009387) ].
