FBXO11/PRMT9, a new protein arginine methyltransferase, symmetrically dimethylates arginine residues.


We have identified a protein, FLJ12673 or FBXO11, that contains domains characteristically present in protein arginine methyltransferases (PRMTs). Immuno-purified protein expressed from one of the four splice variants in HeLa cells and in Escherichia coli exhibited methyltransferase activity. Monomethylarginine, symmetric, and asymmetric dimethylarginine… (More)
