General annotation (Comments)

Function

Reduction of methyl-coenzyme M (2-(methylthio) ethanesulfonic acid) with 7-mercaptoheptanoylthreonine phosphate to methane and a heterodisulfide.

Catalytic activity

Methyl-CoM + CoB = CoM-S-S-CoB + methane.

Cofactor

Binds 2 coenzyme F430 noncovalently per hexamer. Coenzyme F430 is a yellow nickel porphinoid By similarity.

Pathway

One-carbon metabolism; methyl-coenzyme M reduction; methane from methyl-coenzyme M: step 1/1.

Subunit structure

Hexamer of two alpha, two beta, and two gamma chains.
