Enzyme Commission Summary:
Catalyses the transfer of a methyl group from the N5 group of methyltetrahydrofolate to the 5-methoxybenzimidazolylcobamide cofactor of a corrinoid/Fe-S protein. Involved, together with EC 184.108.40.206, carbon-monoxide dehydrogenase (ferredoxin) and EC 220.127.116.11, CO-methylating acetyl-CoA synthase, in the reductive acetyl coenzyme A (Wood-Ljungdahl) pathway of autotrophic carbon fixation in various bacteria and archaea.
