mutase

[′myü‚tās]
(biochemistry)
An enzyme able to catalyze a dismutation or a molecular rearrangement.

Mutase

 

an enzyme that catalyzes the transport of certain functional groups from one part of a molecule to another. The conversion of glucose-6-phosphate to glucose-1-phosphate during glycolysis is catalyzed by phosphoglucomutase (phosphotransferase), a mutase that carries out the intramolecular transport of phosphate groups.

Methylmalonyl CoA mutase (MMCoA mutase) is the second and less central enzyme that requires vitamin B12.
In the isolates with ISCR2, the element was directly linked to a deleted version of a phosphoglucosamine mutase gene, [DELTA]glmM, as has been reported on other occasions (Figure 2).
MMA are due to a deficiency of the adenosylcobalamin-dependent enzyme methylmalonyl-CoA mutase, a defect in intracellular cobalamin metabolism, transcobalamin II deficiency, intrinsic factor deficiency, or dietary cobalamin deficiency, which is found in vegetarians.
The first structural efforts focused on chorismate mutase from Bacillus subtilis (9).
Two genes were targeted for amplification, namely, a conserved region flanked by genus-specific primer binding sites in Helicobacter 16S rDNA and a species-specific sequence, glmM (ureC), encoding a phosphoglucosamine mutase of H pylori.

The researchers then sequenced those chorismate mutase genes, compared the sequences, and identified unique regions in each sequence.
In case of spots which displayed reduced expression levels, structural proteins like Septin-2, cofilin-1 and macrophage capping protein; proteins involved in cellular processes like Annexin 1, Annexin 4, Annexin 5 and proteins involved in metabolism like phosphoglycerate mutase, triosephosphate isomerase, peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase were identified (Figure 5; Table 2).
