Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>
-Experimental evidence at protein leveli <p>This indicates the type of evidence that supports the existence of the protein.

Component of the methyl-coenzyme M reductase (MCR) I that catalyzes the reductive cleavage of methyl-coenzyme M (CoM-S-CH3 or 2-(methylthio)ethanesulfonate) using coenzyme B (CoB or 7-mercaptoheptanoylthreonine phosphate) as reductant which results in the production of methane and the mixed heterodisulfide of CoB and CoM (CoM-S-S-CoB). This is the final step in methanogenesis.

The alpha subunit contains five modified amino acids near the active site region (PubMed:27467699, PubMed:11023796). Is methylated on His-271, Arg-285 and Cys-472, probably by the action of specific S-adenosylmethionine-dependent methyltransferases. Also contains a thioglycine at position 465, forming a thiopeptide bond (PubMed:27467699, PubMed:11023796). Contains a didehydroaspartate residue at position 470 (PubMed:27467699). The methylation on C5 of Arg-285 is a post-translational methylation not essential in vivo, but which plays a role for the stability and structural integrity of MCR (By similarity). Does not show a methylation at Gln-420, as shown for M.marburgensis (PubMed:11023796).By similarity2 Publications
