Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + adenine2142 in 25S rRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N1-methyladenine2142 in 25S rRNA
Other name(s): BMT2 (gene name); 25S rRNA m1A2142 methyltransferase
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:25S rRNA (adenine2142-N1)-methyltransferase
Comments: In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae this methylation is important for resistance towards hydrogen peroxide and the antibiotic anisomycin.
