Reaction Comment Organism Reaction ID
dimethylsulfide + menaquinone + H2O = dimethylsulfoxide + menaquinol according to density functional theory, the reaction between dimethyl sulfoxide and the model complex [Mo(OPh)(C2S2H2)2]- proceeds in one associative step. In the optimized transition state, the bond between the metal and dimethyl sulfoxide is being formed through the oxygen atom of dimethyl sulfoxide while the S-O bond in the substrate is weakening Rhodobacter capsulatus
