Flavoprotein (IPR003382)

Short name: Flavoprotein

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This entry contains a diverse range of flavoprotein enzymes, including epidermin biosynthesis protein, EpiD, which has been shown to be a flavoprotein that binds FMN [PMID: 1644762]. This enzyme catalyzes the removal of two reducing equivalents from the cysteine residue of the C-terminal meso-lanthionine of epidermin to form a --C==C-- double bond. This family also includes the B chain of dipicolinate synthase a small polar molecule that accumulates to high concentrations in bacterial endospores, and is thought to play a role in spore heat resistance, or the maintenance of heat resistance [PMID: 8345520]. Dipicolinate synthase catalyses the formation of dipicolinic acid from dihydroxydipicolinic acid. This family also includes phenylacrylic acid decarboxylase EC:4.1.1 [PMID: 8181743].
