Mass balance status: The left side is missing: H: 1
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: molybdopterin-synthase adenylyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: MoeB, adenylyltransferase and sulfurtransferase MOCS3
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -168.17688 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Adenylates the C-terminus of the small subunit of the molybdopterin synthase. This activation is required to form the thiocarboxylated C-terminus of the active molybdopterin synthase. The reaction occurs in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. The reaction occurs in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. In the human, the reaction is catalysed by the N-terminal domain of the protein MOCS3, which also includes a molybdopterin-synthase sulfurtransferase (EC 22.214.171.124) C-terminal domain.
