Namedimethyl sulphone utilization (aerobic)
DescriptionA pathway has been described in which two FMNH2-dependent members of the bacterial luciferase-like monooxygenase (LLM) family convert dimethyl sulfone (DMS02) first to methanesulfonate (MSA), then from MSA to inorganic form. The enzymes are the dimethyl sulphone monooxygenase SfnG (TIGR04021) and methanesulfonate sulfonatase (an alkanesulfonate monooxygenase) SsuD.
