ResumenLiver methionine adenosyltransferase (MAT) plays a critical role in the metabolism of methionine converting this amino acid, in the presence of ATP, into S-adenosylmethionine. Here we report that hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), via generation of hydroxyl radical, inactivates liver MAT by reversibly and covalently oxidizing an enzyme site. In vitro studies using pure liver recombinant enzyme and mutants of MAT, where each of the 10 cysteine residues of the enzyme subunit were individually changed to serine by site-directed mutagenesis, identified cysteine 121 as the site of molecular interaction between H2O2 and liver MAT. Cysteine 121 is specific to the hepatic enzyme and is localized at a "flexible loop" over the active site cleft of MAT. In vivo studies, using wild-type Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and CHO cells stably expressing liver MAT, demonstrate that the inactivation of MAT by H2O2 is specific to the hepatic enzyme, resulting from the modification of the cysteine residue 121, and that this effect is mediated by the generation of the hydroxyl radical. Our results suggest that H2O2-induced MAT inactivation might be the cause of reduced MAT activity and abnormal methionine metabolism observed in patients with alcoholic liver disease.
