Title: Wide distribution of genes for tetrahydromethanopterin/methanofuran-linked C1 transfer reactions argues for their presence in the common ancestor of bacteria and archaea

In this opinion study, I wish to highlight the fact that reactions linked to tetrahydromethanopterin (H 4MPT) and methanofuran (MF), the ones involved in methanogenesis as well as in methylotrophy, are much more widespread among both Bacteria and Archaea than originally thought.
