||This enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of coenzyme F420, a redox-active cofactor found in all methanogenic archaea, as well as some eubacteria. In some eubacteria the enzyme is multifunctional, also catalysing the activities of EC 126.96.36.199, coenzyme F420-0:L-glutamate ligase, and EC 188.8.131.52, coenzyme F420-1:γ-L-glutamate ligase.
