Description

This family includes the MJ0458 protein from Methanocaldococcus jannaschii (Methanococcus jannaschii), which was predicted to be related to aspartokinase and uridylate kinase [PMID: 22002406]. MJ0458 has been characterised and renamed as MfnE. It functions as a 5-(aminomethyl)-3-furanmethanol phosphate kinase in the methanofuran biosynthetic pathway [PMID: 26100040].
