In Pathway: thiazole biosynthesis I (E. coli)
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 2-iminoacetate synthase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: thiH (gene name)
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -47.847656 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Binds a [4Fe-4S] cluster that is coordinated by 3 cysteines and an exchangeable S-adenosyl-L-methionine molecule. The first stage of catalysis is reduction of the S-adenosyl-L-methionine to produce methionine and a 5-deoxyadenosin-5-yl radical that is crucial for the conversion of the substrate. Part of the pathway for thiamine biosynthesis.
