EC Number: 18.104.22.168
In Pathway: preQ0 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: 6-carboxytetrahydropterin synthase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: CPH4 synthase, queD (gene name), ToyB, ykvK (gene name)
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Binds Zn2+. Isolated from the bacteria Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli. The reaction is part of the biosynthesis pathway of queuosine. The enzyme from Escherichia coli can also convert 6-pyruvoyl tetrahydropterin and sepiapterin to 6-carboxy-5,6,7,8-tetrahydropterin [McCarty09].
