MetaCyc Enzyme: thiamin phosphate synthase

Gene: thiE Accession Number: BSU38290 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: thiC, ipa-26d, ywbK, thiamine-phosphate pyrophosphorylase, thiamin phosphate diphosphorylase

Species: Bacillus subtilis subtilis 168

Summary:
Thiamine-phosphate diphosphorylase (ThiE) catalyzes an important step in the de novo pathway of thiamin diphosphate biosynthesis, the coupling of the two moieties of thiamin, a thiazole (2-(2-carboxy-4-methylthiazol-5-yl)ethyl phosphate) and a pyrimidine (4-amino-2-methyl-5-diphosphomethylpyrimidine), forming thiamin phosphate [Backstrom95].

In addition, the enzyme may catalyze a similar reaction in a slavage pathway, where it couples 4-methyl-5-(2-phosphonooxyethyl)thiazole to the pyrimidine moiety.

While most of the research on ThiE was performed with the Escherichia coli enzyme, a genetic screen designed to identify Bacillus subtilis genes that participate in thiamin metabolism identifed the thiE gene [Lawhorn04]. The crystal structure of the Bacillus subtilis enzyme complexed with the reaction products thiamin phosphate and diphosphate has been determined [Chiu99]. The structure and other mechanistic studies are consistent with a reaction mechanism involving the ionization of 4-amino-2-methyl-5-diphosphomethylpyrimidine at the active site to give the pyrimidine carbocation. The reaction is completed by trapping of the carbocation by the thiazole followed by product dissociation [Chiu99].
