Gene namechlE, bchE
DefinitionMg-protoporphyrin IX monomethyl ester oxidative cyclase
Length499 aa
1500 bp   +upstreambp   +downstreambp
CyanoBaseslr0905 bchE Mg-protoporphyrin IX monomethyl ester oxidative cyclase
UniProtQ55373 cyclase (EC 1.14.13.-) (Mg-protoporphyrin IX monomethyl ester oxidative cyclase).
KOK04034 bchE; anaerobic magnesium-protoporphyrin IX monomethyl ester cyclase [EC:]
Pfam / Prositepf:B12-binding

CommentWhile SLR0905 shows the highest similarity (31%) to BchE from Rhodobacter capsulatus, SLR0309 and SLL1242 also do significant similarity (24% and 21%, respectively) to BchE.
RemarkA slr0905-lacking mutant grew photosynthetically as well as wild type. Accumulation of Mg-protoporphyrin monomethyletser (MPE) was not detected in the mutant. Any evidence for that Slr0905 is involved in MPE cyclase reaction has not obtained.
