Family relationships


This entry contains probable cyclic pyranopterin monophosphate synthase accessory protein (also known as molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis protein C, or MoaC) from archaea.

Members of this MoaC family are involved in molybdenum cofactor (Moco) biosynthesis, an essential cofactor of a diverse group of redox enzymes. MoaC, a small hexameric protein, converts, together with MoaA, a guanosine derivative to the precursor Z by inserting the carbon-8 of the purine between the 2' and 3' ribose carbon atoms, which is the first of three phases of Moco biosynthesis [PMID: 11913130].
