In Escherichia coli, the coenzyme pyridoxal 5'-phosphate is synthesized de novo by a pathway that involves EC 184.108.40.206 (erythrose-4-phosphate dehydrogenase), EC 220.127.116.110 (4-phosphoerythronate dehydrogenase), EC 18.104.22.168 (phosphoserine transaminase), EC 22.214.171.1242 (4-hydroxythreonine-4-phosphate dehydrogenase), EC 126.96.36.199 (pyridoxine 5'-phosphate synthase) and EC 188.8.131.52 (with pyridoxine 5'-phosphate as substrate). 1-Deoxy-D-xylulose cannot replace 1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate as a substrate .
the enzyme shows phosphomutase activity transfering the 5-phosphoryl group of 1-deoxy-D-xylose 5-phosphate to the 4-hydroxyl at some point in the reaction, the phosphate group of the substrate is required for activity, reaction mechanism, overview
