MetaCyc Polypeptide: monomethylamine corrinoid protein

Gene: mtmC Accession Number: G-9439 (MetaCyc)

Species: Methanosarcina barkeri

In vitro reconstitution of CoM methylation with methylamine was achieved with three purified proteins: a monomethylamine corrinoid protein (MMCP), the "A" isozyme of methylated [methylamine-specific corrinoid protein]:coenzyme M methyltransferase (MT2-A), and methylamine--corrinoid protein Co-methyltransferase (MMAMT). MMAMT is a 170-kDa protein with 52-kDa subunits, which is rate-limiting for methyl transfer until at a 2-fold molar excess over MMCP.

MMCP and MMAMT formed a complex detectable by size exclusion high pressure liquid chromatography [Burke97].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 23.067 kD (from nucleotide sequence), 29 kD (experimental) [Burke95 ]
