ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.99.23

Accepted Name
5-hydroxybenzimidazole synthase
Alternative Name(s)
HBI synthase
Reaction catalysed
5-amino-1-(5-phospho-beta-D-ribosyl)imidazole + AH2 + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = 5'-deoxyadenosine + 5-hydroxybenzimidazole + A + formate + 2 H(+) + L-methionine + NH4(+) + phosphate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, purified from bacteria, is part of the anaerobic pathway for cobalamin biosynthesis.
  • It binds a [4Fe-4S] cluster that is coordinated by 3 cysteines and an exchangeable S-adenosyl-L-methionine molecule.
  • The first stage of catalysis is reduction of the S-adenosyl-L- methionine to produce L-methionine and a 5'-deoxyadenosin-5'-yl radical that is crucial for the conversion of the substrate.
