Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + uracil2634 in 25S rRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N3-methyluracil2634 in 25S rRNA
Other name(s): BMT5
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:tRNA (uracil2634-N3)-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, described from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is involved in ribosome biogenesis.
