  • FunctionMembrane-associated arginine methyltransferase that can both catalyze the formation of omega-N monomethylarginine (MMA) and asymmetrical dimethylarginine (aDMA). Able to mono- and dimethylate EWS protein; however its precise role toward EWS remains unclear as it still interacts with fully methylated EWS.
  • Tissue specificityBrain-specific.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein arginine N-methyltransferase family. PRMT8 subfamily.
  • DomainThe SH3-binding motifs mediate the interaction with SH3 domain-containing proteins such as PRMT2 and FYN, possibly leading to displace the N-terminal domain and activate the protein.
    The N-terminal region (1-60) inhibits the enzymatic activity.
