  Domain Name: Pterin_bind
Pterin binding enzyme. This family includes a variety of pterin binding enzymes that all adopt a TIM barrel fold. The family includes dihydropteroate synthase EC: as well as a group methyltransferase enzymes including methyltetrahydrofolate, corrinoid iron-sulfur protein methyltransferase (MeTr) that catalyzes a key step in the Wood-Ljungdahl pathway of carbon dioxide fixation. It transfers the N5-methyl group from methyltetrahydrofolate (CH3-H4folate) to a cob(I)amide centre in another protein, the corrinoid iron-sulfur protein. MeTr is a member of a family of proteins that includes methionine synthase and methanogenic enzymes that activate the methyl group of methyltetra-hydromethano(or -sarcino)pterin.
