EC 2.7.7.73     
Accepted name: sulfur carrier protein ThiS adenylyltransferase
Reaction: ATP + [ThiS] = diphosphate + adenylyl-[ThiS]
Other name(s): thiF (gene name)
Systematic name: ATP:[ThiS] adenylyltransferase
Comments: Binds Zn2+. The enzyme catalyses the adenylation of ThiS, a sulfur carrier protein involved in the biosynthesis of thiamine. The enzyme shows significant structural similarity to ubiquitin-activating enzyme [3,4]. In Escherichia coli, but not in Bacillus subtilis, the enzyme forms a cross link from Cys-184 to the ThiS carboxy terminus (the position that is also thiolated) via an acyldisulfide [2].
