Thiazole synthase (ThiG) catalyzes a very complex reaction that produces the thiazole moiety of thiamin diphosphate. The enzyme requires three inputs - 1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate (DXP), 2-iminoacetate, and a carboxy-adenylated-[ThiS sulfur-carrier protein] [Park03].
Based on current understanding, the reaction starts when DXP binds to lysine 96 of the thiazole synthase, forming an imine that tautomerizes to aminoketone [Dorrestein04]. Addition of the ThiS-thiocarboxylate, (formed separately by reactions catalyzed by ThiF and IscS) is followed by an S/O acyl shift and loss of water, where the ThiS-thiocarboxylate sulfur is exchanged with an oxygen from DXP [Dorrestein04a]. In the next step the ThiS protein leaves the complex and 2-iminoacetate (formed by ThiO from glycine) is added. At this point a cyclization occurs via a transimination that involves the release of ThiG, producing the final product of the enzyme, 2-[(2R,5Z)-(2-carboxy-4-methylthiazol-5(2H)-ylidene]ethyl phosphate [Hazra09].
