Accepted name: cyclic dehypoxanthinyl futalosine synthase
Reaction: dehypoxanthine futalosine + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = cyclic dehypoxanthinyl futalosine + 5′-deoxyadenosine + L-methionine
Glossary: dehypoxanthine futalosine = 3-{3-[(2R,3S,4R)-3,4,5-trihydroxytetrahydrofuran-2-yl]propanoyl}benzoate
cyclic dehypoxanthinyl futalosine = (2R,3S,4R)-3,4,5-trihydroxy-4′-oxo-3′,4,4′,5-tetrahydro-2’H,3H-spiro[furan-2,1′-naphthalene]-6′-carboxylate
Other name(s): MqnC; dehypoxanthinyl futalosine cyclase
Systematic name: dehypoxanthine futalosine:S-adenosyl-L-methionine oxidoreductase (cyclizing)
Comments: This enzyme is a member of the ‘AdoMet radical’ (radical SAM) family. The enzyme, found in several bacterial species, is part of the futalosine pathway for menaquinone biosynthesis.
