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.
Catalytic activity RHEA:16585: [[Fe-S] cluster scaffold protein carrying a second [4Fe-4S](2+) cluster] + 4 H(+) + N(6)-octanoyl-L-lysyl-[protein] + 2 oxidized [2Fe-2S]-[ferredoxin] + 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine = (R)-N(6)-dihydrolipoyl-L-lysyl-[protein] + 2 5'-deoxyadenosine + [[Fe-S] cluster scaffold protein] + 4 Fe(3+) + 2 hydrogen sulfide + 2 L-methionine + 2 reduced [2Fe-2S]-[ferredoxin]
Cofactor [4Fe-4S] cluster
Note: Binds 2 [4Fe-4S] clusters per subunit. One cluster is coordinated with 3 cysteines and an exchangeable S-adenosyl-L-methionine.
case <OC:Bacillales>
Pathway Protein modification; protein lipoylation via endogenous pathway; protein N(6)-(lipoyl)lysine from octanoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein].
Pathway Protein modification; protein lipoylation via endogenous pathway; protein N(6)-(lipoyl)lysine from octanoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein]: step 2/2.
end case

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).
