ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
C-phycoerythrin beta-cysteine-48/59 phycoerythrobilin lyase.
Reaction catalysed
phycoerythrobilin-L-cysteinyl(48)/L-cysteinyl(59)-[C-phycoerythrin beta-subunit] <=> (2R,3E)-phycoerythrobilin + apo-L-cysteinyl(48)/L-cysteinyl(59)-[C-phycoerythrin beta-subunit]
  • The enzyme, characterized from the cyanobacterium Microchaete diplosiphon, catalyzes the attachment of the phycobilin chromophore (3E)-phycoerythrobilin (PEB) to cysteine 48 and 59 of the beta subunits of the phycobiliprotein C-phycoerythrin.
  • The enzyme first ligates the A ring of PEB to cysteine-48, followed by the attachment of the D ring to cysteine-59.
  • The numbering used here corresponds to the enzyme from Microchaete diplosiphon, and could vary slightly in other organisms.
  • The reaction requires the presence of the chaperone-like protein CpeZ.
