IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
nicotinate D-ribonucleotide:phenol phospho-D-ribosyltransferase
Other name:
Systematic name:
nicotinate D-ribonucleotide:phenol phospho-D-ribosyltransferase



The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of phenolic cobamides in the Gram-positive bacterium Sporomusa ovata. It can also transfer the phospho-D-ribosyl group to 4-methylphenol and 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole. The related EC, nicotinate-nucleotide dimethylbenzimidazole phosphoribosyltransferase, also transfers the phospho-D-ribosyl group from nicotinate D-ribonucleotide to 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole, but shows no activity with 4-methylphenol or phenol.
