MetaCyc Polypeptide: trimethylamine-specific corrinoid protein

Gene: mttC Accession Number: G-9438 (MetaCyc)

Species: Methanosarcina barkeri

Summary:
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: 22.949 kD (from nucleotide sequence), 26 kD (experimental) [Ferguson97 ]

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

Reactions known to produce the compound:

methanogenesis from trimethylamine :
a [methyl-Co(III) trimethylamine-specific corrinoid protein] + coenzyme M → a [Co(I) trimethylamine-specific corrinoid protein] + methyl-CoM

In Reactions of unknown directionality:

Not in pathways:
a [Co(II) trimethylamine-specific corrinoid protein] + ATP + a reduced electron acceptor = a [Co(I) trimethylamine-specific corrinoid protein] + ADP + an oxidized electron acceptor + phosphate
