(Methyl-Co(III) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein):coenzyme M methyltransferase (EC 2.1.1.253, methyltransferase 2, mtqA (gene)) is an enzyme with systematic name methylated tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein:coenzyme M methyltransferase.[1] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

[methyl-Co(III) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein] + coenzyme M methyl-CoM + [Co(I) tetramethylammonium-specific corrinoid protein]

This enzyme catalyses the transfer of a methyl group from a corrinoid protein.
