Standard Gibbs Free Energy of Change Formation (ΔfG in kcal/mol): 111.29915 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Reactions known to consume the compound:

methanogenesis from trimethylamine :
trimethylamine + a [Co(I) trimethylamine-specific corrinoid protein] + H+ → a [methyl-Co(III) trimethylamine-specific corrinoid protein] + dimethylamine

trimethylamine degradation :
trimethylamine + NADPH + oxygen → trimethylamine N-oxide + NADP+ + H2O

Reactions known to produce the compound:

choline degradation III :
choline → trimethylamine + acetaldehyde

formate to trimethylamine N-oxide electron transfer , NADH to trimethylamine N-oxide electron transfer :
trimethylamine N-oxide[periplasmic space] + a menaquinol[inner membrane] + H+[periplasmic space]trimethylamine[periplasmic space] + a menaquinone[inner membrane] + H2O[periplasmic space]

L-carnitine degradation III :
L-carnitine + NAD(P)H + oxygen + H+ → L-malic semialdehyde + trimethylamine + NAD(P)+ + H2O

methanogenesis from tetramethylammonium :
tetramethylammonium + a [Co(I) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein] + H+ → a [methyl-(Co(III) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein] + trimethylamine

In Reactions of unknown directionality:

Not in pathways:
trimethylamine N-oxide + NADH + 2 H+ = trimethylamine + NAD+ + H2O
trimethylamine + 2 an oxidized c-type cytochrome + H2O = trimethylamine N-oxide + 2 a reduced c-type cytochrome + 3 H+
acetyl phosphate + trimethylamine + an oxidized thioredoxin + H2O = glycine betaine + a reduced thioredoxin + phosphate + H+
trimethylamine + an oxidized electron-transfer flavoprotein + H2O = dimethylamine + formaldehyde + a reduced electron-transfer flavoprotein

In Redox half-reactions:
trimethylamine N-oxide[out] + 3 H+[out] + 2 e-trimethylamine[out] + H2O[out]

Enzymes inhibited by trimethylamine, sorted by the type of inhibition, are:

Inhibitor (Competitive) of: dimethylamine dehydrogenase [Meiberg79]

Inhibitor (Mechanism unknown) of: L-carnitine dehydrogenase [Hanschmann96]
