Enzyme Commission Primary Name: [methionine synthase] reductase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: methionine synthase cob(II)alamin reductase (methylating), methionine synthase reductase, [methionine synthase]-cobalamin methyltransferase (cob(II)alamin reducing)
Taxonomic Range: Metazoa
Enzyme Commission Summary:
In humans, the enzyme is a flavoprotein containing FAD and FMN. The substrate of the enzyme is the inactivated [Co(II)] form of EC 184.108.40.206, methionine synthase. Electrons are transferred from NADPH to FAD to FMN. Defects in this enzyme lead to hereditary hyperhomocysteinemia.
