mutase

 [mu´tās]
any of a group of enzymes (transferases) that catalyze the intramolecular shifting of a chemical group from one position to another.

mu·tase

(myū'tās),
Any enzyme that catalyzes the apparent migration of groups within one molecule, for example, phosphoglycerate phosphomutase; sometimes the transfer is from one molecule to another, for example, phosphoglucomutase, phosphoglyceromutase (both phosphotransferases).

They include excited state of photo-active proteins by configuration interaction studies, using the fragment molecular orbital (FMO) method to recognize specific bio-macromolecules, FMO in the study of viruses and their binding to receptors, and the chorismate mutase reaction as a case study for modeling a protein environment in an enzymatic catalysis.
The results of the present study raise the possibility that folic acid supplementation could promote the development of anemia and cognitive decline in people with marginal vitamin B12 status, presumably by decreasing the activity of two vitamin B12-dependent enzymes, methionine synthase and methylmalonic acid-coenzyme A mutase.

They have revealed that the new enzyme discovered by them is called 2-hydroxyisobutyryl-CoA mutase, and that it makes it possible to turn a linear C4 carbon structure into a branched one.
Methionine synthase (in the cytosol) requires methylcobalamin as cofactor, and methylmalonyl CoA mutase (in mitochondria) requires 5' deoxyadenosylcobalamin as coenzyme.
