Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0006777 - Mo-molybdopterin cofactor biosynthetic process

Synonyms: Mo-molybdopterin cofactor anabolism, Mo-molybdopterin cofactor biosynthesis, Mo-molybdopterin cofactor formation, Mo-molybdopterin cofactor synthesis, Moco biosynthesis, Moco biosynthetic process

Definition: The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of the Mo-molybdopterin cofactor, essential for the catalytic activity of some enzymes. The cofactor consists of a mononuclear molybdenum (Mo) ion coordinated by one or two molybdopterin ligands.
