The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

E. coli mutants which lack the ability to synthesize 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole (DMB) are able to grow when supplied with exogenous DMB and cobinamide [Lawrence95].
