Protein

Methylated-DNA--protein-cysteine methyltransferase

Gene

MGMT

Organism
Bos taurus (Bovine)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Involved in the cellular defense against the biological effects of O6-methylguanine (O6-MeG) and O4-methylthymine (O4-MeT) in DNA. Repairs the methylated nucleobase in DNA by stoichiometrically transferring the methyl group to a cysteine residue in the enzyme. This is a suicide reaction: the enzyme is irreversibly inactivated.

Miscellaneous

This enzyme catalyzes only one turnover and therefore is not strictly catalytic. According to one definition, an enzyme is a biocatalyst that acts repeatedly and over many reaction cycles.

Catalytic activityi

DNA (containing 6-O-methylguanine) + protein L-cysteine = DNA (without 6-O-methylguanine) + protein S-methyl-L-cysteine.PROSITE-ProRule annotation
DNA (containing 4-O-methylthymine) + protein L-cysteine = DNA (without 4-O-methylthymine) + protein S-methyl-L-cysteine.PROSITE-ProRule annotation
