Methyltetrahydrofolate:corrinoid/iron-sulfur protein methyltransferase (MeTr) catalyzes the transfer of the N5-methyl group from N5- methyltetrahydrofolate (CH3THF) to the cobalt center of a corrinoid/iron-sulfur protein, a reaction similar to that of cobalamin-dependent methionine synthase (MetH). For such a reaction to occur, CH3THF is expected to be activated by a stereospecific protonation at the N5 position. It has been shown experimentally that binding to MeTr is associated with a pK a...[Show more]
