ENZYME entry: EC 6.2.1.44

Accepted Name
3-(methylthio)propionyl--CoA ligase.
Alternative Name(s)
3-methylmercaptopropionyl-CoA ligase.
Methylmercaptopropionate-coenzyme A ligase.
MMPA-CoA ligase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + 3-(methylthio)propanoate + CoA <=> AMP + diphosphate + 3-(methylthio)propanoyl-CoA
Cofactor(s)
Mg(2+).
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme is part of a dimethylsulfoniopropanoate demethylation pathway in the marine bacteria Ruegeria pomeroyi and Pelagibacter ubique.
  • It also occurs in some nonmarine bacteria capable of metabolizing dimethylsulfoniopropionate (e.g. Burkholderia thailandensis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Silicibacter lacuscaerulensis).
