This enzyme, found in green sulfur bacteria (Chlorobiaceae) and green flimentous bacteria (Chloroflexaceae), is a radical S-adenosyl-L-methionine (AdoMet) enzyme and contains a [4Fe-4S] cluster. It adds one or two methyl groups at the C-82 position of bacteriochlorophylls of the c, d, and e types. These methylations play a role in fine-tuning the structural arrangement of the bacteriochlorophyll aggregates in chlorosomes and therefore directly influence chlorosomal absorption properties.
