Glossary: molybdenum cofactor = MoCo = MoO2(OH)Dtpp-mP = {[(5aR,8R,9aR)-2-amino-4-oxo-6,7-di(sulfanyl-κS)-1,5,5a,8,9a,10-hexahydro-4H-pyrano[3,2-g]pteridin-8-yl]methyl dihydrogenato(2-) phosphate}(dioxo)molybdate
Other name(s): MobA; MoCo guanylyltransferase
Systematic name: GTP:molybdenum cofactor guanylyltransferase
Comments: Catalyses the guanylation of the molybdenum cofactor. This modification occurs only in prokaryotes.
