Accepted name: precorrin-6B C5,15-methyltransferase (decarboxylating)
Reaction: 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine + precorrin-6B = 2 S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + precorrin-8X + CO2 (overall reaction)
(1a) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + precorrin-6B = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + precorrin-7 + CO2
(1b) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + precorrin-7 = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + precorrin-8X

Glossary: precorrin-6B = precorrin-6Y
Other name(s): precorrin-6 methyltransferase; precorrin-6Y methylase; precorrin-6Y C5,15-methyltransferase (decarboxylating); cobL (gene name)
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:1-precorrin-6B C5,15-methyltransferase (C-12-decarboxylating)
Comments: The enzyme participates in the aerobic (late cobalt insertion) adenosylcobalamin biosynthesis pathway. The enzyme from the bacterium Pseudomonas denitrificans is a fusion protein with two active sites; one catalyses the methylation at C-15 followed by decarboxylation of the C-12 acetate side chain, while the other catalyses the methylation at C-5. The corresponding activities in the anaerobic adenosylcobalamin biosynthesis pathway are catalysed by EC, cobalt-precorrin-6B (C15)-methyltransferase [decarboxylating], and EC, cobalt-precorrin-7 (C5)-methyltransferase, respectively.
