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.

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.

Developmental stage

There are two MCR complexes in this bacteria. MCR II is expressed in the early growth phase. Late growth cells contains mostly MCR I.
