ENZYME entry: EC 1.5.99.15

Accepted Name
Dihydromethanopterin reductase (acceptor).
Reaction catalysed
5,6,7,8-tetrahydromethanopterin + oxidized acceptor <=> 7,8-dihydromethanopterin + reduced acceptor
Cofactor(s)
Flavin; Iron-sulfur.
Comment(s)
  • This archaeal enzyme catalyzes the last step in the biosynthesis of tetrahydromethanopterin, a coenzyme used in methanogenesis.
  • The enzyme is characterized from the archaea Methanosarcina mazei and Methanocaldococcus jannaschii.
  • Cf. EC 1.5.1.47.
