EC 2.1.1.373     
Accepted name: 2-hydroxy-4-(methylsulfanyl)butanoate S-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + (2R)-2-hydroxy-4-(methylsulfanyl)butanoate = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + (2R)-4-(dimethylsulfaniumyl)-2-hydroxybutanoate
Other name(s): dsyB (gene name); methylthiohydroxybutyrate methyltransferase; MTHB methyltransferase
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:(2R)-2-hydroxy-4-(methylsulfanyl)butanoate S-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the marine bacterium Labrenzia aggregata, participates in the biosynthesis of dimethylsulfoniopropanoate (DMSP). A eukaryotic enzyme that shares little sequence similarity with the bacterial enzyme was identified in many marine phytoplankton species.
