Summaries for TRDMT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TRDMT1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein responsible for the methylation of aspartic acid transfer RNA, specifically at the cytosine-38 residue in the anticodon loop. This enzyme also possesses residual DNA-(cytosine-C5) methyltransferase activity. While similar in sequence and structure to DNA cytosine methyltransferases, this gene is distinct and highly conserved in its function among taxa. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010]

GeneCards Summary for TRDMT1 Gene

TRDMT1 (TRNA Aspartic Acid Methyltransferase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and tRNA processing. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and DNA (cytosine-5-)-methyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRDMT1 Gene

  • Specifically methylates cytosine 38 in the anticodon loop of tRNA(Asp).

Tocris Summary for TRDMT1 Gene

  • Protein arginine methyltransferases are enyzmes that catalyze the transfer of methyl groups from S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) to the arginine residues on histones and other proteins. The dysregulation of this methylation is critical in the development of certain cancers.
