Over the past 10 years, considerable progress has been made in our understanding of the mechanistic enzymology of the Radical-SAM enzymes. ...
It is now clear that these enzymes appear to be involved in a remarkably wide range of chemically challenging reactions. This review article highlights mechanistic and structural aspects of the methylthiotransferases (MTTases) sub-class of the Radical-SAM enzymes. The mechanism of methylthio insertion, now observed to be performed by three different enzymes is an exciting unsolved problem. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled: Radical SAM enzymes and Radical Enzymology.
