Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the conversion of D-ribulose 5-phosphate to formate and 3,4-dihydroxy-2-butanone 4-phosphate.
Catalyzes the conversion of GTP to 2,5-diamino-6-ribosylamino-4(3H)-pyrimidinone 5'-phosphate (DARP), formate and pyrophosphate.
Catalytic activity D-ribulose 5-phosphate = formate + L-3,4-dihydroxybutan-2-one 4-phosphate.
GTP + 3 H(2)O = formate + 2,5-diamino-6-hydroxy-4-(5-phospho-D-ribosylamino)pyrimidine + diphosphate.
Cofactor Mg(2+)
Note: Binds 2 divalent metal cations per subunit. Magnesium or manganese.
Note: Binds 1 zinc ion per subunit.
Pathway Cofactor biosynthesis; riboflavin biosynthesis; 2-hydroxy-3-oxobutyl phosphate from D-ribulose 5-phosphate: step 1/1.
Cofactor biosynthesis; riboflavin biosynthesis; 5-amino-6-(D-ribitylamino)uracil from GTP: step 1/4.
Similarity In the N-terminal section; belongs to the DHBP synthase family.
In the C-terminal section; belongs to the GTP cyclohydrolase II family.
