This domain is a RNA 2'-O ribose methyltransferase substrate binding domain.


Most cellular RNAs undergo a number of post-transcriptional nucleoside modifications. While the biological role of many of these modifications is unknown, some have been shown to be necessary for cell growth or for resistance to antibiotics [PUBMED:8266080, PUBMED:9187657]. One of the most common modifications is 2'O-ribose methylation catalysed by the RNA 2'O-ribose methyltransferases, a large enzyme family that transfer a methyl group from S-adenosyl-L-methionine (AdoMet) to the 2'-OH group of the backbone ribose [PUBMED:9917067].
