Human name has changed for Entrez Gene: 27292. From DIMT1 rRNA methyltransferase and ribosome maturation factor to DIM1 rRNA methyltransferase and ribosome maturation factor

summary for human DIMT1 from NCBI

The protein encoded by this gene is a methyltransferase that is responsible for dimethylation of adjacent adenosines near the 18S rRNA decoding site. The encoded protein is essential for ribosome biogenesis, although its catalytic activity is not involved in the process. The yeast ortholog of this protein functions in the cytoplasm while this protein functions in the nucleus. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2017]
