Accepted name: cobalt-precorrin-5B (C1)-methyltransferase
Reaction: cobalt-precorrin-5B + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = cobalt-precorrin-6A + S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine

Glossary: cobalt-precorrin-6A = cobalt-precorrin-6x
Other name(s): cobalt-precorrin-6A synthase; CbiD
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:cobalt-precorrin-5B (C1)-methyltransferase
Comments: This enzyme catalyses the C-1 methylation of cobalt-precorrin-5B in the anaerobic (early cobalt insertion) pathway of adenosylcobalamin biosynthesis.
