EC 2.1.1.252     
Accepted name: tetramethylammonium—corrinoid protein Co-methyltransferase
Reaction: tetramethylammonium + a [Co(I) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein] = a [methyl-Co(III) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein] + trimethylamine
Other name(s): mtqB (gene name); tetramethylammonium methyltransferase
Systematic name: tetramethylammonium:5-hydroxybenzimidazolylcobamide Co-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, which catalyses the transfer of a methyl group from tetramethylammonium to a tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein (MtqC), is involved in methanogenesis from tetramethylammonium. Methylation of the corrinoid protein requires the central cobalt to be in the Co(I) state. During methylation the cobalt is oxidized to the Co(III) state. The methylated corrinoid protein is substrate for EC 2.1.1.253, methylated tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein:coenzyme M methyltransferase.
