molybdopterin adenylyltransferase Inferred from experiment : mog

In Pathway: molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: molybdopterin adenylyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: MogA, Cnx1 (ambiguous)

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Catalyses the activation of molybdopterin for molybdenum insertion. In eukaryotes, this reaction is catalysed by the C-terminal domain of a fusion protein that also includes molybdopterin molybdotransferase (EC The reaction requires a divalent cation such as Mg2+ or Mn2+.
