Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + pseudouridine1915 in 23S rRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N3-methylpseudouridine1915 in 23S rRNA
Other name(s): YbeA; RlmH; pseudouridine methyltransferase; m3Ψ methyltransferase; Ψ1915-specific methyltransferase; rRNA large subunit methyltransferase H
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:23S rRNA (pseudouridine1915-N3)-methyltransferase
Comments: YbeA does not methylate uridine at position 1915 .
