IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.16.1.8

Names

Accepted name:
[methionine synthase] reductase
Other names:
[methionine synthase]-cobalamin methyltransferase (cob(II)alamin reducing)
methionine synthase cob(II)alamin reductase (methylating)
methionine synthase reductase
[methionine synthase]-methylcob(I)alamin,S-adenosylhomocysteine:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Systematic name:
[methionine synthase]-methylcob(III)alamin,S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine:NADP+ oxidoreductase

Reaction

Cofactors

Comments:

In humans, the enzyme is a flavoprotein containing FAD and FMN. The substrate of the enzyme is the inactivated cobalt(II) form of EC 2.1.1.13, methionine synthase. Electrons are transferred from NADPH to FAD to FMN. Defects in this enzyme lead to hereditary hyperhomocysteinemia.
