Accepted name: adenosylcobalamin/α-ribazole phosphatase
Reaction: (1) adenosylcobalamin 5′-phosphate + H2O = coenzyme B12 + phosphate
(2) α-ribazole 5′-phosphate + H2O = α-ribazole + phosphate

Other name(s): CobC; adenosylcobalamin phosphatase; α-ribazole phosphatase
Systematic name: adenosylcobalamin/α-ribazole-5′-phosphate phosphohydrolase
Comments: This enzyme catalyses the last step in the anaerobic (early cobalt insertion) pathway of adenosylcobalamin biosynthesis, characterized in Salmonella enterica [3]. It also participates in a salvage pathway that recycles cobinamide into adenosylcobalamin [1].
