Accepted name: cobalt-precorrin-6A reductase
Reaction: cobalt-precorrin-6B + NAD+ = cobalt-precorrin-6A + NADH + H+
For diagram of anaerobic corrin biosynthesis (part 2), click here
Other name(s): cbiJ (gene name)
Systematic name: cobalt-precorrin-6B:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme, which participates in the anaerobic (early cobalt insertion) pathway of adenosylcobalamin biosynthesis, catalyses the reduction of the double bond between C-18 and C-19 of cobalt-precorrin-6A. The enzyme from the bacterium Bacillus megaterium has no activity with NADPH. See EC, precorrin-6A reductase, for the corresponding enzyme that participates in the aerobic cobalamin biosynthesis pathway.
