Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the radical-mediated transfer of the hydroxybenzyl group from 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate (HPP) to 5-amino-6-ribitylamino-2,4(1H,3H)-pyrimidinedione to form 7,8-didemethyl-8-hydroxy-5-deazariboflavin (FO).
Catalytic activity 5-amino-6-(D-ribitylamino)uracil + 3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)pyruvate + 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine + H(2)O = 7,8-didemethyl-8-hydroxy-5-deazariboflavin + 2 L-methionine + 2 5'-deoxyadenosine + oxalate + NH(3).
case <FTGroup:1>
Cofactor [4Fe-4S] cluster
Note: Binds 1 [4Fe-4S] cluster. The cluster is coordinated with 3 cysteines and an exchangeable S-adenosyl-L-methionine.
end case
Pathway Cofactor biosynthesis; coenzyme F0 biosynthesis.
Subunit Consists of two subunits, CofG and CofH.
Similarity Belongs to the radical SAM superfamily. CofG family.

Comments Euryarchaeota, cyanobacteria and actinomycetes are known to produce coenzyme FO. Euryarchaeota and actinomycetes use it to synthesize coenzyme F420, whereas cyanobacteria use it for FO-dependent DNA photolyases. In actinomycetes, the two subunits cofG and cofH are fused, and are called fbiC. Possible wrong starts.
