|5-methyltetrahydrofolate + L-homocysteine <=> tetrahydrofolate + L-methionine|
- The enzyme becomes inactivated occasionally during its cycle by
oxidation of Co(I) to Co(II).
- Reactivation by reductive methylation is catalyzed by the enzyme
itself, with S-adenosyl-L-methionine as the methyl donor and a
- For the mammalian enzyme, the reducing system involves NADPH and
- In bacteria, the reducing agent is flavodoxin, and no further
catalyst is needed (the flavodoxin is kept in the reduced state by
NADPH and EC 22.214.171.124).
- Acts on the monoglutamate as well as the triglutamate folate,
in contrast with EC 126.96.36.199, which acts only on the triglutamate.
