Sysname
methylated methanol-specific corrinoid protein:CoM methyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
a [methyl-Co(III) methanol-specific corrinoid protein] + CoM = methyl-CoM + a [Co(I) methanol-specific corrinoid protein] [RN:R10000]
Reaction(KEGG)
R10000;
(other) R09098
Show
Substrate
[methyl-Co(III) methanol-specific corrinoid protein];
CoM [CPD:C03576]
Product
methyl-CoM [CPD:C03920];
[Co(I) methanol-specific corrinoid protein]
Comment
The enzyme, which is involved in methanogenesis from methanol, catalyses the transfer of a methyl group from a corrinoid protein (see EC 2.1.1.90, methanol---corrinoid protein Co-methyltransferase), where it is bound to the cobalt cofactor, to CoM, forming the substrate for EC 2.8.4.1, coenzyme-B sulfoethylthiotransferase, the enzyme that catalyses the final step in methanogenesis. Free methylcob(I)alamin can substitute for the corrinoid protein in vitro [5].
