IUBMB Comments
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. The reductant is assumed to be NADPH, which is provided by a flavoprotein:NADPH oxidoreductase system . Part of the pathway for thiamine biosynthesis.
