Comments [?]

Function S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent methyltransferase that catalyzes the trimethylation of the amino group of the modified target histidine residue in translation elongation factor 2 (EF-2), to form an intermediate called diphthine. The three successive methylation reactions represent the second step of diphthamide biosynthesis.
Catalytic activity 3 S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 2-((3S)-3-carboxy-3-aminopropyl)-L-histidine-[translation elongation factor 2] = 3 S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + diphthine-[translation elongation factor 2].
Pathway Protein modification; peptidyl-diphthamide biosynthesis.
Subunit Homodimer.
Similarity Belongs to the diphthine synthase family.
