  1. aAssignment of methyltransferases to a methyltransferase specificity sequence is based on experimental evidence for M.Mca195I, and homology for M.Mca195ORF6035P and M.Mca195ORF8410P. M.Mca195ORF6035P shares 63% amino acid identity with M.HinP1I that recognizes the sequence 5′-GCGC-3′, and M.Mca195ORF8410P shares 71% amino acid identity with M.CocII that recognizes 5′-GCNGC-3′. Due to the low kinetic signal of 5mC methylation, the percentage of methylated sites are not calculated (NC)
