Regulation summary diagram for mog

Molybdenum and tungsten cofactors of all enzymes that require one or the other for activity are present in an oxidized state as molybdate or tungstate ions that are chelated by the cis-ditholene moiety of the molybdenum cofactor. The particular cofactor that occurs in Escherichia coli is molybdenum guanine dinucleotide. This and other molydenum cofactors are so extremely unstable that they have not been isolated in pure form and only the outline of their pathway of biosynthesis has been elucidated. In the last step molybdenum is inserted to become chelated by the cis-dithiolene moiety of molybdopterin and a guanyl group is added yielding molybdopterin guanine dinucleotide, the acitve cofactor of E. coli. MogA, along with MoeA, is implicated in the step involving the chelation of molybdenum. [Leimkuhler01]

Crystal structures of MogA have been solved at 1.6 and 1.45 Å resolution, and a putative active site has been identified [Liu00].
