ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
S-methyl-5-thioribulose 1-phosphate isomerase.
Alternative Name(s)
5-methylthioribulose-1-phosphate isomerase.
Reaction catalysed
  • S-methyl-5-thio-D-ribulose 1-phosphate <=> S-methyl-1-thio-D-xylulose 5-phosphate
  • S-methyl-5-thio-D-ribulose 1-phosphate <=> S-methyl-1-thiol-D-ribulose 5-phosphate
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Rhodospirillum rubrum, participates in methionine salvage from S-methyl-5'-thioadenosine.
  • It is a RuBisCO-like protein (RLP) that is not capable of carbon fixation, and catalyzes an isomerization reaction that converts S-methyl-5-thio-D-ribulose 1-phosphate to a 3:1 mixture of S-methyl- 1-thioxylulose 5-phosphate and S-methyl-1-thioribulose 5-phosphate.
  • The reaction is an overall 1,3-proton transfer, which likely consists of two 1,2-proton transfer events.
