Comments [?]

case <OC:Methanobacteria> or <OC:Methanococci> or <OC:Methanomicrobia> or <OC:Methanopyri>
Function Catalyzes the decarboxylation of L-tyrosine to produce tyramine for methanofuran biosynthesis. Can also catalyze the decarboxylation of L-aspartate to produce beta-alanine for coenzyme A (CoA) biosynthesis.
Catalytic activity RHEA:14345: H(+) + L-tyrosine = CO2 + tyramine
EC 4.1.1.25
RHEA:19497: H(+) + L-aspartate = beta-alanine + CO2
EC 4.1.1.11
else
Function Catalyzes the decarboxylation of L-aspartate to produce beta-alanine.
Catalytic activity RHEA:19497: H(+) + L-aspartate = beta-alanine + CO2
EC 4.1.1.11
end case
case <OC:Methanobacteria> or <OC:Methanococci> or <OC:Methanomicrobia> or <OC:Methanopyri>
Pathway Cofactor biosynthesis; methanofuran biosynthesis.
end case
Pathway Cofactor biosynthesis; coenzyme A biosynthesis.
Similarity Belongs to the group II decarboxylase family. MfnA subfamily.

Comments In methanogens, the essential role of MfnA is to generate tyramine for methanofuran biosynthesis, but it can also supply the small amount of beta-alanine needed for coenzyme A production (see PubMed:24891443).
