Keyword - Coenzyme M biosynthesis (KW-0174)


Protein involved in the biosynthesis of coenzyme M. Coenzyme M (2-mercaptoethanesulfonic acid) is the smallest known organic cofactor. CoM serves as a methyl group carrier in key reactions within the pathway of methane formation from C1 precursors. In the alkene metabolism pathway, it is involved in aliphatic epoxyde carboxylation.
