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,
CC       EC and EC to coenzyme M, forming the substrate
CC       for EC, the enzyme that catalyzes the final step in
CC       methanogenesis.
