Cobalamins comprise a group of cobalt-containing organometallic cofactors that play important roles in cellular metabolism. Although many cobalamin-dependent methyltransferases (e.g., methionine synthase MetH) have been extensively studied, a new group of methyltransferases that are cobalamin-dependent and utilize radical chemistry in catalysis is just beginning to be appreciated. In this Concept article, we summarize recent advances in the understanding of the radical-based and cobalamin-dependent methyltransferases and discuss the functional and mechanistic diversity of this emerging class of enzymes.
