Abstract: Cleavage of the acetyl carbon-carbon bond of acetyl-CoA in Methanosarcina barkeri is catalyzed by a high molecular mass multienzyme complex. The complex contains a corrinoid protein and carbon monoxide dehydrogenase and requires tetrahydrosarcinapterin (H4SPt) as methyl group acceptor. Reactions of the enzyme complex with carbon monoxide and with the methyl group donor N5-methyltetrahydrosarcinapterin (CH3-H4SPt) have been analyzed by UV-visible spectroscopy. Reduction of the enzyme complex by CO occurred in t…
