ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.350

Accepted Name
menaquinone C(8)-methyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
  • a menaquinone + reduced [flavodoxin] + 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine <=> 5'-deoxyadenosine + an 8-methylmenaquinone + 3 H(+) + L-methionine + oxidized [flavodoxin] + S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine
  • a 2-demethylmenaquinone + reduced [flavodoxin] + 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine <=> 5'-deoxyadenosine + a 2-demethyl-8-methylmenaquinone + 3 H(+) + L-methionine + oxidized [flavodoxin] + S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine
Comment(s)
The enzyme, found in a wide range of bacteria and archaea, is a radical SAM (AdoMet) enzyme that utilizes two molecules of S-adenosyl-L-methionine, one as the methyl group donor, and one for the creation of a 5'-deoxyadenosine radical that drives the reaction forward.
