Protein arginine methylation is an important posttranslational modification in eukaryotic cells, which has been implicated in RNA processing and trafficking, receptor-mediated signaling, and transcription. PRMT5, also known as Janus kinase-binding protein 1 (JBP1) and Skb1Hs (human homolog of Skb1 of fission yeast can catalyze the formation of omega-N(G)-monomethylarginine and symmetric omega-N(G),N(G')-dimethylarginine in a variety of proteins. Recombinant PRMT5 can mono and dimethylate histone 2A and myelin basic protein. PRMT5 appears to have lower specific enzyme activity than PRMT1.
