Details for DNA (cytosine-5-)-methyltransferase activity
2.1.1.37
Gene ontology ID
GO:0003886
Definition
Catalysis of the reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + DNA containing cytosine = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + DNA containing 5-methylcytosine
Comment
Note that EC:2.1.1.73 was deleted from EC as the reaction is performed by DNA (cytosine-5-)-methyltransferase (EC:2.1.1.37).
