The methionine salvage pathway allows the in vivo recovery of the methylthio moiety of methionine upon the formation of methylthioadenosine (MTA) from S-adenosylmethionine (SAM). The Fe(II)-containing form of acireductone dioxygenase (ARD) catalyzes the penultimate step in the pathway in Klebsiella oxytoca, the oxidative cleavage of the acireductone 1,2-dihydroxy-3-oxo-5-(methylthio)pent-1-ene (2)...
