Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from 5-methyltetrahydrofolate to homocysteine resulting in methionine formation.
Catalytic activity RHEA:21196: 5-methyltetrahydropteroyltri-L-glutamate + L-homocysteine = L-methionine + tetrahydropteroyltri-L-glutamate
EC 2.1.1.14
Cofactor Zn(2+)
Note: Binds 1 zinc ion per subunit.
Pathway Amino-acid biosynthesis; L-methionine biosynthesis via de novo pathway; L-methionine from L-homocysteine (MetE route): step 1/1.
Similarity Belongs to the vitamin-B12 independent methionine synthase family.
