Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the radical-mediated insertion of two sulfur atoms into the C-6 and C-8 positions of the octanoyl moiety bound to the lipoyl domains of lipoate-dependent enzymes, thereby converting the octanoylated domains into lipoylated derivatives (By similarity).
Catalytic activity Protein N(6)-(octanoyl)lysine + 2 sulfur-(sulfur carrier) + 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine = protein N(6)-(lipoyl)lysine + 2 (sulfur carrier) + 2 L-methionine + 2 5'-deoxyadenosine.
Cofactor Binds 2 4Fe-4S clusters per subunit. One cluster is coordinated with 3 cysteines and an exchangeable S-adenosyl-L-methionine (By similarity).
case <OC:Bacillales>

end case
Subcellular location Cytoplasm (Potential).
Similarity Belongs to the radical SAM superfamily. Lipoyl synthase family.

Comments E.coli requires only 2 proteins for the endogenous pathway of protein lipoylation, LipB (MF_00013) and LipA (MF_00206), whereas B.subtilis (and probably many Firmicutes) requires 3 enzymes: LipM (MF_02118), LipL (MF_02119) and LipA (MF_00206).
