ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Beta-ribofuranosylphenol 5'-phosphate synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
4-(beta-D-ribofuranosyl)aminobenzene 5'-phosphate synthase.
Beta-RFA-P synthase.
Beta-RFAP synthase.
Beta-ribofuranosylaminobenzene 5'-phosphate synthase.
Reaction catalysed
5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate + 4-hydroxybenzoate <=> 4-(beta-D-ribofuranosyl)phenol 5'-phosphate + CO(2) + diphosphate
Mn(2+) or Mg(2+).
  • The enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of tetrahydromethanopterin in archaea.
  • It was initially thought to use 4-aminobenzoate as a substrate, but was later shown to utilize 4-hydroxybenzoate.
