ENZYME: 2.1.1.247


ID   2.1.1.247
DE   [Methyl-Co(III) methylamine-specific corrinoid protein]:coenzyme M
DE   methyltransferase.
AN   MT2-A.
CA   A [methyl-Co(III) methylamine-specific corrinoid protein] + coenzyme M =
CA   methyl-CoM + a [Co(I) methylamine-specific corrinoid protein].
CF   Zn(2+).
CC   -!- The enzyme, which is involved in methanogenesis from mono-, di-,
CC       and trimethylamine, catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group bound to
CC       the cobalt cofactor of several corrinoid proteins (mono-, di-,
CC       and trimethylamine-specific corrinoid proteins, cf. EC 2.1.1.248,
CC       EC 2.1.1.249 and EC 2.1.1.250) to coenzyme M, forming the substrate
CC       for EC 2.8.4.1, the enzyme that catalyzes the final step in
CC       methanogenesis.
