rRNA 2'-O-methyltransferase fibrillarin

Known also as: 34 kDa nucleolar scleroderma antigen

Known abbreviations: FBL, FIB1, FLRN


Involved in pre-rRNA processing. Utilizes the methyl donor S-adenosyl-L-methionine to catalyze the site-specific 2'-hydroxyl methylation of ribose moieties in pre-ribosomal RNA. Site specificity is provided by a guide RNA that base pairs with the substrate. Methylation occurs at a characteristic distance from the sequence involved in base pairing with the guide RNA.
Interacts with NOLC1 By similarity. Component of box C/D small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein (snoRNP) particles that contain NHP2L1, FBL, NOP5 and NOP56, plus a guide RNA. It is associated with the U3, U8, U13, X and Y small nuclear RNAs. Component of several ribosomal and nucleolar protein complexes. Interacts with PRMT5 and UTP20. Interacts with DDX5. 
Nucleus › nucleolus. Note: Fibrillar region of the nucleolus. 
By homology to other fibrillarins, some or all of the N-terminal domain arginines are modified to asymmetric dimethylarginine (DMA).
