Accepted name: 7,8-didemethyl-8-hydroxy-5-deazariboflavin synthase
Reaction: 5-amino-5-(4-hydroxybenzyl)-6-(D-ribitylimino)-5,6-dihydrouracil + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = 7,8-didemethyl-8-hydroxy-5-deazariboflavin + NH3 + L-methionine + 5′-deoxyadenosine

Other name(s): FO synthase; fbiC (gene name) (ambiguous); cofG (gene name)
Systematic name: 5-amino-5-(4-hydroxybenzyl)-6-(D-ribitylimino)-5,6-dihydrouracil ammonia-lyase (7,8-didemethyl-8-hydroxy-5-deazariboflavin-forming)
Comments: The enzyme produces the 7,8-didemethyl-8-hydroxy-5-deazariboflavin (FO) precursor of factor 420 (coenzyme F420), a metabolite found in methanogens and in various actinobacteria. FO is also produced by some cyanobacteria and eukaryotes. The enzyme, which forms a complex with EC, 5-amino-6-(D-ribitylamino)uracil—L-tyrosine 4-hydroxyphenyl transferase, is a radical SAM enzyme that uses the 5′-deoxyadenosyl radical to catalyse the condensation reaction.
