Subunit composition of methionine adenosyltransferase = [MetK]4
         methionine adenosyltransferase = MetK

Methionine adenosyltransferase catalyzes the formation of the sulfonium compound S-adenosylmethionine. The reaction is unusual in that the entire tripolyphosphate chain is cleaved from the ATP molecule, and is further degraded to pyrophosphate and phosphate before the products are released [Markham80]. Due to its importance, the enzyme is a target for the development of antimicrobial and anticancer compounds.

The enzyme is a homotetramer in solution [Markham80]; the tetrameric form is required for activity [Markham88, Reczkowski95]. Various crystal structures of methionine adenosyltransferase have been solved. The enzyme is a dimer of dimers with active sites located at the dimer interfaces [Takusagawa96, Takusagawa96a, Komoto04]. A mobile loop gates access to the active site [Fu96].

Methionine adenosyltransferase requires binding of two divalent cations and one monovalent cation per subunit for full activity [Markham80, Markham81]. The binding sites have been studied [Markham84, Markham86, Zhang93, McQueney95]. The reaction proceeds by a sequential mechanism consistent with random binding of substrates and ordered product release [Markham80]. The catalytic mechanism and active site have been studied [Markham87, SchalkHihi99, Reczkowski99, McQueney00, Taylor02, Taylor99, Taylor00]. The R244 residue plays a role in interactions with the triphosphate chain [Reczkowski98]. A novel catalytic mechanism for SAM formation has been proposed [Komoto04].

Novel inhibitors of methionine adenosyltransferase have been discovered by computational docking and were tested in vitro [Taylor09].

metK is essential for growth in E. coli [Wei02]. The metK84 mutant has an altered promoter sequence [Wei02] and shows a defect in cell division [Newman98]. Further studies of recruitment of cell division proteins to the septal ring in the metK84 mutant indicate that a methylation reaction is required for complete septal ring assembly [Wang05a]. Expression of methionine adenosyltransferase is regulated by MetJ [Su71]. Transcription of metK is induced upon biofilm formation [Ren04].

[Satischandran93] reported the presence of two adjacent genes encoding methionine adenosyltransferase, metK and metX; however, as noted by [Wei02], there is no evidence for the existence of metX in the sequenced genome.
