ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
precorrin-6B C(5,15)-methyltransferase (decarboxylating).
Alternative Name(s)
precorrin-6 methyltransferase.
precorrin-6Y C(5,15)-methyltransferase (decarboxylating).
precorrin-6Y methylase.
Reaction catalysed
precorrin-6B + 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine <=> CO2 + 3 H(+) + precorrin-8X + 2 S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine
  • The enzyme participates in the aerobic (late cobalt insertion) adenosylcobalamin biosynthesis pathway.
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Pseudomonas denitrificans is a fusion protein with two active sites; one catalyzes the methylation at C-15 followed by decarboxylation of the C-12 acetate side chain, while the other catalyzes the methylation at C-5.
  • The corresponding activities in the anaerobic adenosylcobalamin biosynthesis pathway are catalyzed by EC and EC
