ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.49

Accepted Name
O-acetylhomoserine aminocarboxypropyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Methionine synthase.
O-acetyl-L-homoserine acetate-lyase (adding methanethiol).
O-acetyl-L-homoserine sulfhydrolase.
O-acetylhomoserine (thiol)-lyase.
O-acetylhomoserine sulfhydrolase.
OAH sulfhydrylase.
Reaction catalysed
O-acetyl-L-homoserine + methanethiol <=> L-methionine + acetate
Comment(s)
  • Also reacts with other thiols and H(2)S, producing homocysteine or thioethers.
  • The name methionine synthase is more commonly applied to EC 2.1.1.13.
  • The enzyme from Saccharomyces cerevisiae also catalyzes the reaction of EC 2.5.1.47, but more slowly.
  • Formerly EC 4.2.99.10.
