ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.373

Accepted Name
2-hydroxy-4-(methylsulfanyl)butanoate S-methyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Methylthiohydroxybutyrate methyltransferase.
MTHB methyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + (2R)-2-hydroxy-4-(methylsulfanyl)butanoate <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + (2R)-4-(dimethylsulfaniumyl)-2-hydroxybutanoate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the marine bacterium Labrenzia aggregata, participates in the biosynthesis of dimethylsulfoniopropanoate (DMSP).
  • A eukaryotic enzyme that shares little sequence similarity with the bacterial enzyme was identified in many marine phytoplankton species.
