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 the redox cofactor coenzyme F420, which is 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.
