EC 4.4.1.33     
Accepted name: R-phycocyanin α-cysteine-84 phycourobilin lyase/isomerase
Reaction: [R-phycocyanin α-subunit]-Cys84-phycourobilin = apo-[R-phycocyanin α-subunit] + (2R,3E)-phycoerythrobilin
Other name(s): rpcG (gene name)
Systematic name: [R-phycocyanin α-subunit]-Cys84-phycourobilin:(2R,3E)-phycoerythrobilin lyase/isomerase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. WH8102, catalyses the covalent attachment of the phycobilin chromophore phycoerythrobilin to cysteine 84 of the α subunit of the phycobiliprotein R-phycocyanin and its isomerization to phycourobilin.
