  • Function

    Catalyzes the methylation of 5-carboxymethyl uridine to 5-methylcarboxymethyl uridine at the wobble position of the anticodon loop in tRNA. Catalyzes the last step in the formation of 5-methylcarboxymethyl uridine at the wobble position of the anticodon loop in target tRNA. Has a preference for tRNA(Arg) and tRNA(Glu), and does not bind tRNA(Lys). Required for normal survival after DNA damage. May inhibit apoptosis and promote cell survival and angiogenesis.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed, with highest expression in spleen, followed by pancreas and lung.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the alkB family.
    Contains 1 Fe2OG dioxygenase domain.
    Contains 1 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Predominantly cytoplasmic.
