ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Alternative Name(s)
Hydrogenobyrinic acid a,c-diamide cobaltochelatase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + hydrogenobyrinate a,c-diamide + Co(2+) + H(2)O <=> ADP + phosphate + cob(II)yrinate a,c-diamide + H(2)
  • This enzyme, which forms part of the aerobic (late cobalt insertion) cobalamin biosynthesis pathway, is a type I chelatase, being heterotrimeric and ATP-dependent.
  • It comprises two components, one of which corresponds to CobN and the other is composed of two polypeptides, specified by cobS and cobT in Pseudomonas denitrificans, and named CobST.
  • Hydrogenobyrinate is a very poor substrate.
  • ATP can be replaced by dATP or CTP but the reaction proceeds more slowly.
  • CobN exhibits a high affinity for hydrogenobyrinate a,c-diamide.
  • The oligomeric protein CobST possesses at least one sulfhydryl group that is essential for ATP-binding.
  • See EC for the cobaltochelatase that participates in the anaerobic cobalamin biosynthesis pathway.
