       thymidylate synthase (FAD)
IUBMB Comments
Contains FAD. All thymidylate synthases catalyse a reductive methylation involving the transfer of the methylene group of 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to the C5 position of dUMP and a two electron reduction of the methylene group to a methyl group. Unlike the classical thymidylate synthase, ThyA (EC, which uses folate as both a 1-carbon donor and a source of reducing equivalents, this enzyme uses a flavin coenzyme as a source of reducing equivalents, which are derived from NADPH.
