Short name: CofG_family

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry represents either a subunit (CofG/subunit 1) or the N-terminal domain of a bifunctional protein that completes the synthesis of 7,8-didemethyl-8-hydroxy-5-deazariboflavin, or FO [PMID: 14593448]. FO is the chromophore of coenzyme F(420), involved in methanogenesis in methanogenic archaea but found in certain other lineages as well. The chromophore also occurs as a cofactor in DNA photolyases in Cyanobacteria.
