Same participants, different directions

RHEA:28274 (S)-S-adenosyl-L-methionine = (R)-S-adenosyl-L-methionine
RHEA:28275 (S)-S-adenosyl-L-methionine => (R)-S-adenosyl-L-methionine
RHEA:28277 (S)-S-adenosyl-L-methionine <=> (R)-S-adenosyl-L-methionine

Comments

This reaction can occur spontaneously.
The natural (S)-S-adenosyl-L-methionine form undergoes spontaneous racemization at the sulfonium pole to give (R)-S-adenosyl-L-methionine.
