Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Compound Class: a prosthetic group

Superclasses: a cofactor

A prosthetic group is a term for a compound or ion that is essential for the activity of an enzyme, and is tightly bound to the enzyme.

Child Classes: a biopterin (0), a coenzyme F420 (0), a folate (13), a metal-sulfur cluster (0), a methanofuran (0), a Mo-molybdopterin cofactor (5)
