General description

Vitamin B12 cobalamin refers to a group of chemically-related cobalt containing molecules. The physiologically active forms of vitamin B12 include methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, whereas hydroxocobalamin (vitamin B12a, OHCbl) and cyanocobalamin (CNCbl) are storage and delivery forms.

Application

Coenzyme B12 has been used as a supplement for culturing plasmid variants in in vivo assay of yvrC-lacZ fusions.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Vitamin B12 cobalamin is involved in DNA synthesis and fatty acid synthesis. It also plays a vital role as a coenzyme in the conversion of mitochondrial methylmalonyl co-enzyme A to succinyl co-enzyme A.

We present here an energetic and atomistic description of how D-ornithine 4,5-aminomutase (OAM), an adenosylcobalamin (AdoCbl; coenzyme B(12))-dependent isomerase, employs a large-scale protein domain conformational change to orchestrate the homolytic rupture of the Co-C bond. Our results suggest that in

Coenzyme B(12) can assist radical enzymes that accomplish the vicinal interchange of a hydrogen atom with a functional group. It has been proposed that the Co-C bond homolysis of coenzyme B(12) to cob(II)alamin and the 5'-deoxyadenosyl radical is aided by hydrogen bonding
