Reaction Comment Organism Reaction ID
dimethylsulfide + menaquinone + H2O = dimethylsulfoxide + menaquinol computational studies show that the enzyme follows a two-step associative mechanism with the binding of dimethylsulfoxide in the first step and the oxygen-atom transfer and dissociation of the dimethylsulfide product in the second step. The first transition state is close in energy to the intermediate (within about 10 kJ/mol), whereas the rate-limiting barrier is observed for the second step Rhodobacter capsulatus
