ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.258

Accepted Name
5-methyltetrahydrofolate:corrinoid/iron-sulfur protein Co-methyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
A [methyl-Co(III) corrinoid Fe-S protein] + tetrahydrofolate <=> a [Co(I) corrinoid Fe-S protein] + 5-methyltetrahydrofolate
Comment(s)
  • Catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from the N(5) group of methyltetrahydrofolate to the 5-methoxybenzimidazolylcobamide cofactor of a corrinoid/Fe-S protein.
  • Involved, together with EC 1.2.7.4 and EC 2.3.1.169, in the reductive acetyl coenzyme A (Wood-Ljungdahl) pathway of autotrophic carbon fixation in various bacteria and archaea.
