|Gene:||sam2||Accession Number: G-467 (MetaCyc)|
Synonyms: S-adenosylmethionine synthetase 2, AdoMet synthase 2
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Subunit composition of methionine adenosyltransferase 2 = [Sam2]4
The subunit composition is not entirely clear. There are conflicting data. It is known that the subunit structure is tetrameric. The structure is represented here as homotetrameric for simplicity. [Thomas97a]
Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 42.124 kD (from nucleotide sequence) [Bairoch93a ]

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction of enzyme catalysis.
The reaction is irreversible in the direction shown.
S-Adenosylmethionine synthetase 2 is one of two S. cerevisiae enzymes that catalyzes the formation of S-adenosylmethionine. Each enzyme is active independently. [Thomas97a, Thomas88a, Thomas91]
