ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.253

Accepted Name
[Methyl-Co(III) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein]:coenzyme M methyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
A [methyl-Co(III) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein] + coenzyme M <=> methyl-CoM + a [Co(I) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein]
Comment(s)
The enzyme, which is involved in methanogenesis from tetramethylammonium, catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from a corrinoid protein (see EC 2.1.1.252), where it is bound to the cobalt cofactor, to coenzyme M, forming the substrate for EC 2.8.4.1, the enzyme that catalyzes the final step in methanogenesis.
