This enzyme belongs to the family of isomerases, specifically those intramolecular transferases transferring other groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is precorrin-8X 11,12-methylmutase. Other names in common use include precorrin isomerase, and hydrogenobyrinic acid-binding protein. This enzyme participates in porphyrin and chlorophyll metabolism.
