DESCRIPTION
Also known as BQMT1_ORYSJ, ARSM2. Involved in a key methylation step in both tocopherols (vitamin E) and plastoquinone synthesis. Catalyzes the conversion of 2-methyl-6-phytyl-1,4-hydroquinone (MPBQ) to 2,3-dimethyl-6-phytyl-1,4-hydroquinone (DMPQ, a substrate for tocopherol cyclase), and 2-methyl-6-solanyl-1,4-benzoquinone (MSBQ) to plastoquinone (By similarity).
