7-methylxanthosine synthase 1
Short name= XMT
The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
Involved in the biosynthesis of caffeine. Specific for xanthosine. Cannot use xanthosine 5'-monophosphate (XMP) as substrate. Directly produces 7-methylxanthine, and therefore the methyl transfer and nucleoside cleavage may be coupled. Catalyzes the 7-N-methylation of xanthosine, but does not have 1-N- or 3-N-methylation activity.
Methyltransferase superfamily, Type-7 methyltransferase family
