Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FTSJ3 Gene
Although the function of this gene is not known, the existence of this gene is supported by mRNA and EST data. A possible function of the encoded protein can be inferred from amino acid sequence similarity to the E.coli FtsJ protein and to a mouse protein possibly involved in embryogenesis.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for FTSJ3 Gene
RNA 2'-O-methyltransferase involved in the processing of the 34S pre-rRNA to 18S rRNA and in 40S ribosomal subunit formation.
(Microbial infection) In case of infection by HIV-1 virus, recruited to HIV-1 RNA and catalyzes 2'-O-methylation of the viral genome, allowing HIV-1 virus to escape the innate immune system (PubMed:30626973). RNA 2'-O-methylation provides a molecular signature for discrimination of self from non-self and is used by HIV-1 to evade innate immune recognition by IFIH1/MDA5 (PubMed:30626973). Mediates methylation of internal residues of HIV-1 RNA, with a strong preference for adenosine (PubMed:30626973). Recruited to HIV-1 RNA via interaction with TARBP2/TRBP (PubMed:30626973).
