This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring one-carbon group methyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is S-adenosyl-L-methionine:3-hexaprenyl-4,5-dihydroxylate O-methyltransferase. Other names in common use include 3,4-dihydroxy-5-hexaprenylbenzoate methyltransferase, and dihydroxyhexaprenylbenzoate methyltransferase. This enzyme participates in ubiquinone biosynthesis.
