(phosphatase 2A protein)-leucine-carboxy methyltransferase (EC 2.1.1.233, leucine carboxy methyltransferase-1, LCMT1) is an enzyme with systematic name S-adenosyl-L-methionine:(phosphatase 2A protein)-leucine O-methyltransferase.[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

S-adenosyl-L-methionine + [phosphatase 2A protein]-leucine S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + [phosphatase 2A protein]-leucine methyl ester

Methylates the C-terminal leucine of phosphatase 2A.
