    476 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    54844 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with importin alpha, leading to stimulate both RNA-binding and methyltransferase activity. Interaction with importin alpha and beta is required for its nuclear localization, importin beta dissociating in response to RanGTP, allowing RNMT-importin alpha to bind RNA substrates. Interacts with elongating form of polymerase II and RNGTT. Interacts with RAM/FAM103A1, the interaction significantly enhances RNA-binding and cap methyltransferase activity.
