2C-methyl-D-erythritol 2,4-cyclodiphosphate synthase signature





Description

The bacterial ispF protein [1] catalyzes the fifth step of the deoxyxylulose-5-phosphate pathway (DXP) of isoprenoid biosynthesis; the conversion of 4-diphosphocytidyl-2C-methyl-D-erythritol 2-phosphate into 2C-methyl-D-erythritol 2,4-cyclodiphosphate and CMP. It can also converts 4-diphosphocytidyl-2C-methyl-D-erythritol into 2C-methyl-D-erythritol 3,4-cyclophosphate and CMP.

In addition to bacterial ispF, this family also includes:

  • Plasmodium falciparum hypothetical protein PfB0420W.

These are proteins of around 20 kDa whose sequence is well conserved. As a signature pattern, we selected a well conserved region located in the N-terminal part of these proteins.
