A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.3.153

Accepted Name
(5-formylfuran-3-yl)methyl phosphate synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-furaldehyde phosphate synthase.
4-HFC-P synthase.
Reaction catalysed
2 D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate <=> (5-formylfuran-3-yl)methyl phosphate + phosphate + 2 H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme catalyzes the reaction in the direction of producing (5-formylfuran-3-yl)methyl phosphate, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of methanofuran.
  • The sequence of events starts with the removal of a phosphate group, followed by aldol condensation and cyclization.
  • Methanofuran is a carbon-carrier cofactor involved in the first step of the methanogenic reduction of carbon dioxide by methanogenic archaea.
  • Formerly EC 4.1.99.21.
