Family relationships

Description

This family includes Saccharomyces cerevisiae phospholipid methyltransferase EC:2.1.1.16, which has a broad substrate specificity of unsaturated phospholipids [PMID: 2445736], and related enzymes such as methanethiol S-methyltransferase (EC:2.1.1.334), which catalyzes the methylation of methanethiol to yield dimethylsulphide (a volatile compound important in climate regulation) [PMID: 25807229].
