CmoB is distinctive in that it is the only known member of the SAM-dependent methyltransferase (SDMT) superfamily that utilizes a naturally occurring SAM analog as the alkyl donor to fulfill a biologically meaningful function.

The putative mfn gene cluster (45 kb, 20 orfs) was found to encode six NRPSs and related proteins for cyclodepsipeptide core construction (mfnCDEFKL), a methionyl-tRNA formyltransferase (mfnA), a SAM-dependent methyltransferase (mfnG), and a cytochrome P450 monooxygenase for piperazic acid moiety hydroxylation (mfnN); notably, only MfnN uses an intact cyclodepsipeptide intermediate as its substrate.

In tRNAs of gram-negative bacteria, formation of m (5)U is catalyzed by the SAM-dependent methyltransferase TrmA, while formation of m (5)U at two different positions in rRNA is catalyzed by distinct site-specific methyltransferases RlmC and RlmD.
