E. coli methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) catalyses the NADH-dependent reduction of 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate (CH2-H4folate) to 5 methyltetrahydrofolate (CH3-H4folate) using the cofactor flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) as an intermediate hydride acceptor and donor. MTHFR is the only route of CH3-H4folate which is used by methionine synthase to convert homocysteine to methionine.
E. coli MTHFR is a homotetramer that dissociates into dimers on dilution. Its catalytic domain is a (beta-alpha)8 barrel. Bacterial MTHFR enzymes are simpler than mammalian MTHFR in that the catatlytic domain constitutes the entire sequence, with no regulatory sequence present.
E. coli MTHFR catalysis proceeds by a ping pong Bi-Bi reaction mechanism. The enzyme catalyses individual half-reactions, with the reduction of enzyme-bound FAD by NADH to form NAD+, which is released prior to CH2-H4folate binding. CH2-H4folate is thought to be converted to CH3-H4folate by reduced E-FAD via a 5-iminium cation intermediate.
NADH binds at the si face of E-FAD(ox) cofactor. The 4S-hydrogen of NADH is transferred as a hydride to N5 of FAD, forming E-FAD(red) and NAD+. NAD+ dissociates from the enzyme. CH2-H4folate also binds at the si face of FAD. N10 of CH2-H4folate is thought to be protonated by Glu28, which leads to the opening of the five-membered imidazolidine ring of CH2-H4folate to form the 5-iminium cation intermediate. The intermediate is stabilised by Asp120 and Glu28. A hydride is transferred from N5 of E-FAD(red) to the exocyclic methylene group (C11) of the stabilised 5-iminium cation intermediate to form the product CH3-H4folate.
