Other name(s): precorrin-3 methyltransferase; CobJ
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:precorrin-3B C17-methyltransferase
Comments: In the aerobic cobalamin biosythesis pathway, four enzymes are involved in the conversion of precorrin-3A to precorrin-6A. The first of the four steps is carried out by EC, precorrin-3B synthase (CobG), yielding precorrin-3B as the product. This is followed by three methylation reactions, which introduce a methyl group at C-17 (CobJ; EC, C-11 (CobM; EC and C-1 (CobF; EC of the macrocycle, giving rise to precorrin-4, precorrin-5 and precorrin-6A, respectively.
