Sysname
S-adenosyl-L-methionine:8,12-diethyl-3-vinylbacteriochlorophyllide-d C-82-methyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
(1) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 8,12-diethyl-3-vinylbacteriochlorophyllide d = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 12-ethyl-8-propyl-3-vinylbacteriochlorophyllide d [RN:R11508];
(2) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 12-ethyl-8-propyl-3-vinylbacteriochlorophyllide d = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 12-ethyl-8-isobutyl-3-vinylbacteriochlorophyllide d [RN:R11509]

R11508 R11509
Substrate
S-adenosyl-L-methionine [CPD:C00019];
8,12-diethyl-3-vinylbacteriochlorophyllide d [CPD:C21427];
12-ethyl-8-propyl-3-vinylbacteriochlorophyllide d [CPD:C21428]
Product
S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine [CPD:C00021];
12-ethyl-8-propyl-3-vinylbacteriochlorophyllide d [CPD:C21428];
12-ethyl-8-isobutyl-3-vinylbacteriochlorophyllide d [CPD:C21429]
Comment
This enzyme, found in green sulfur bacteria (Chlorobiaceae) and green flimentous bacteria (Chloroflexaceae), is a radical S-adenosyl-L-methionine (AdoMet) enzyme and contains a [4Fe-4S] cluster. It adds one or two methyl groups at the C-82 position of bacteriochlorophylls of the c, d, and e types. These methylations play a role in fine-tuning the structural arrangement of the bacteriochlorophyll aggregates in chlorosomes and therefore directly influence chlorosomal absorption properties.
