Accepted name: pyrroloquinoline-quinone synthase
Reaction: 6-(2-amino-2-carboxyethyl)-7,8-dioxo-1,2,3,4,7,8-hexahydroquinoline-2,4-dicarboxylate + 3 O2 = 4,5-dioxo-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-f]quinoline-2,7,9-tricarboxylate + 2 H2O2 + 2 H2O

Other name(s): PqqC; 6-(2-amino-2-carboxyethyl)-7,8-dioxo-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8-octahydroquinoline-2,4-dicarboxylate:oxygen oxidoreductase (cyclizing) [incorrect]
Systematic name: 6-(2-amino-2-carboxyethyl)-7,8-dioxo-1,2,3,4,7,8-hexahydroquinoline-2,4-dicarboxylate:oxygen oxidoreductase (cyclizing)
Comments: So far only a single turnover of the enzyme has been observed, and the pyrroloquinoline quinone remains bound to it. It is not yet known what releases the product in the bacterium.
