MMACHC:cob(II)alamin (B12r, vitamin B12r) binding to methylmalonic aciduria and homocystinuria type D protein (MMADHC) represents a branch point in the targeted delivery of cob(II)alamin to either cytosolic or mitochondrial enzymes requiring this cofactor (Mah et al. 2013, Plesa et al. 2011, Deme et al. 2012). Both MMACHC and MMADHC are implicated in the intracellular transport of cobalamins but exact details of the mechanisms involved remain unclear.

Defects in MMADHC cause methylmalonic aciduria and homocystinuria type cblD (MMAHCD; MIM:277410), a disorder of Cbl metabolism characterised by decreased levels of the coenzymes adenosylcobalamin (AdoCbl) and methylcobalamin (MeCbl) (Coelho et al. 2008).
