Also known as
ECK3986
Summary
In vitro Salmonella ThiC produces HMP (4-amino-2-methyl-5-hydroxymethylpyrimidine) from AIR (5-amino-1-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)imidazole) utilizing SAM and an iron-sulfur cluster in a reaction reminiscent of Radical SAM family reactions although ThiC does not contain the Radical SAM Cys signature motif (Martinez-Gomez, 2008). [More information is available at EcoGene: EG11585]. The gene has been sequenced. [More information is available at EcoCyc: EG11585].
