InterPro : IPR013484

Name  Molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis protein B, proteobacteria Short Name  MoaB_proteobac
Type  Family Description  MoaB is thought to be involved in molybdopterin biosynthesis, though its exact role is not known. Structural studies of this polypeptide suggest that it may play a role in substrate-shuttling during biosynthesis []. MoaB was capable of binding GTP, and it was suggested that the putative active site could also bind precursor Z and/or molybdenum. Potential protein interaction domains were also found, implying that MoaB may play a transport and/or storage role in molybdopterin biosynthesis.
