Functioni

Methyltransferase required for the conversion of demethylmenaquinol (DMKH2) to menaquinol (MKH2) and the conversion of 2-polyprenyl-6-methoxy-1,4-benzoquinol (DDMQH2) to 2-polyprenyl-3-methyl-6-methoxy-1,4-benzoquinol (DMQH2).UniRule annotation

Catalytic activityi

A demethylmenaquinol + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = a menaquinol + S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine.UniRule annotation
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 2-methoxy-6-all-trans-polyprenyl-1,4-benzoquinol = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 6-methoxy-3-methyl-2-all-trans-polyprenyl-1,4-benzoquinol.UniRule annotation

Pathway: menaquinone biosynthesis

This protein is involved in step 2 of the subpathway that synthesizes menaquinol from 1,4-dihydroxy-2-naphthoate.UniRule annotation
Proteins known to be involved in the 2 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. no protein annotated in this organism
  2. Ubiquinone/menaquinone biosynthesis C-methyltransferase UbiE (ubiE)
