Subunit composition of
trimethylamine--corrinoid protein Co-methyltransferase = [MttB]
trimethylamine methyltransferase mttB subunit = MttB
Reconstitution of trimethylamine-dependent coenzyme M (CoM) methylation showed that three polypeptides were involved - trimethylamine--corrinoid protein Co-methyltransferase, trimethylamine-specific corrinoid protein and methylated [methylamine-specific corrinoid protein]:coenzyme M methyltransferase.
The first two proteins, of sizes 52 and 26 kDa, respectively, copurified as a single trimethylamine methyltransferase (TMA-MT). Gel permeation of the TMA-MT fraction demonstrated that the 52- kDa polypeptide eluted with an apparent molecular mass of 280 kDa. The 26-kDa protein eluted primarily as a monomer, but some 26-kDa polypeptides also eluted with the 280-kDa peak, indicating that the two proteins weakly associate [Ferguson97].
Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 53.855 kD (from nucleotide sequence)
