MetaCyc Polypeptide: dimethylamine corrinoid protein

Gene: mtbC Accession Number: G-9441 (MetaCyc)

Species: Methanosarcina barkeri

Summary:
Methyl transfer from dimethylamine to coenzyme M was reconstituted in vitro using three Methanosarcina barkeri proteins, which included a dimethylamine corrinoid protein MtbC, methylated [methylamine-specific corrinoid protein]:coenzyme M methyltransferase (the isoform of MT2 specific for methanogenesis from methylamines), and dimethylamine--corrinoid protein Co-methyltransferase.

dimethylamine corrinoid protein, which binds 1.0 mol of corrinoid cofactor/mol of 24-kDa polypeptide, copurified with methylated [methylamine-specific corrinoid protein]:coenzyme M methyltransferase. This complex was used to assay and purify the dimethylamine--corrinoid protein Co-methyltransferase, MtbB1. MtbB1 is a 230-kDa protein composed of 51-kDa subunits. An MtbB1:MtbC ratio of 1 was optimal for coenzyme M methylation with dimethylamine.

Purified MtbB1, MtbC, and MtbA were the sole protein requirements for in vitro dimethylamine:coenzyme M methyl transfer. MtbB1 methylated either corrinoid bound to MtbC or free cob(I)alamin with dimethylamine [Ferguson00].

Reactions known to consume the compound:

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

Reactions known to produce the compound:

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

In Reactions of unknown directionality:

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