Methionine oxidation in bacteria: A reversible post‐translational modification

Maxence Vincent
Benjamin Ezraty

Abstract

Methionine is a sulfur-containing residue found in most proteins which are particu- larly susceptible to oxidation. Although methionine oxidation causes protein damage, it can in some cases activate protein function. Enzymatic systems reducing oxidized methionine have evolved in most bacterial species and methionine oxidation proves to be a reversible post-translational modification regulating protein activity. In this review, we inspect recent examples of methionine oxidation provoking protein loss and gain of function. We further speculate on the role of methionine oxidation as a multilayer endogenous antioxidant system and consider its potential consequences for bacterial virulence.
