Comments [?]

FUNCTIONCleaves the carbon-mercury bond of organomercurials such as phenylmercuric acetate. One product is Hg(2+), which is subsequently detoxified by the mercuric reductase.
CATALYTIC ACTIVITY Reaction=an alkylmercury + H(+) = an alkane + Hg(2+); Xref=Rhea:RHEA:18777, ChEBI:CHEBI:15378, ChEBI:CHEBI:16793, ChEBI:CHEBI:18310, ChEBI:CHEBI:83725; EC=;
SIMILARITYBelongs to the MerB family.
