Requires cobalamin. The enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Streptomyces wedmorensis, is involved in fosfomycin biosynthesis. It is a radical S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) enzyme that contains a [4Fe-4S] center and a methylcob(III)alamin cofactor. The enzyme uses two molecues of SAM for the reaction. One molecule forms a 5'-deoxyadenosyl radical, while the other is used to methylate the cobalamin cofactor. The 5'-deoxyadenosyl radical abstracts a hydrogen from the C2 position of cytidine 5'-{[(2-hydroxyethyl)phosphonoyl]phosphate} forming a free radical that reacts with the methyl group on methylcob(III)alamin at the opposite side from SAM and the [4Fe-4S] cluster to produce a racemic mix of methylated products and cob(II)alamin. Both the [4Fe-4S] cluster and the cob(II)alamin need to be reduced by an unknown factor(s) before the enzyme could catalyse another cycle.
