IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
pre-mycofactocin synthase
Systematic name:
3-amino-5-[(4-hydroxyphenyl)methyl]-4,4-dimethyl-2-pyrrolidin-2-one:oxygen oxidoreductase



A flavoprotein (FMN). The enzyme participates in the biosynthesis of the enzyme cofactor mycofactocin. The enzyme uses oxygen as an electron source to oxidize a C-N bond, followed by spontaneous exchange with water to form an α-keto moiety on the resulting molecule.
