|FMNH(2) + NADH + O(2) <=> 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole + D-erythrose 4-phosphate + NAD(+) + other product(s)|
- The enzyme catalyzes a complex oxygen-dependent conversion of reduced
flavin mononucleotide to form 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole, the lower
ligand of vitamin B12.
- This conversion involves many sequential steps in two distinct
stages, and an alloxan intermediate that acts as a proton donor,
a proton acceptor, and a hydride acceptor.
- The C-2 of 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole is derived from C-1' of the
ribityl group of FMNH(2) and 2-H from the ribityl 1'-pro-S hydrogen.
- While D-erythrose 4-phosphate has been shown to be one of the
byproducts, the nature of the other product(s) has not been verified
- Formerly EC 184.108.40.206.
