- S-methyl-5'-thioadenosine + phosphate adenine + S-methyl-5-thio-alpha-D-ribose 1-phosphate
This enzyme belongs to the family of glycosyltransferases, specifically the pentosyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is S-methyl-5-thioadenosine:phosphate S-methyl-5-thio-alpha-D-ribosyl-transferase. Other names in common use include 5'-methylthioadenosine nucleosidase, 5'-deoxy-5'-methylthioadenosine phosphorylase, MTA phosphorylase, MeSAdo phosphorylase, MeSAdo/Ado phosphorylase, methylthioadenosine phosphorylase, methylthioadenosine nucleoside phosphorylase, 5'-methylthioadenosine:phosphate methylthio-D-ribosyl-transferase, and S-methyl-5-thioadenosine phosphorylase. This enzyme participates in methionine metabolism.
As of late 2007, 20 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes 1CB0, 1CG6, 1JDS, 1JDT, 1JDU, 1JDV, 1JDZ, 1JE0, 1JE1, 1JP7, 1JPV, 1K27, 1ODI, 1ODJ, 1ODK, 1SD1, 1SD2, 1V4N, 1WTA, and 2A8Y.
