Protein namei

  • Recommended name:
    Lipoyl synthase, chloroplastic (EC:2.8.1.8)
    Alternative name(s):
    Lipoate synthase
    Short name:
    LS
    Short name:
    Lip-syn
    Lipoate synthase, plastidial
    Short name:
    LIP1p
    Lipoic acid synthase

Gene namei

  • Name:LIP1P

Catalytic activityi

  • Protein N6-(octanoyl)lysine + 2 sulfur-(sulfur carrier) + 2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 2 reduced [2Fe-2S] ferredoxin = protein N6-(lipoyl)lysine + 2 (sulfur carrier) + 2 L-methionine + 2 5'-deoxyadenosine + 2 oxidized [2Fe-2S] ferredoxin.

Functioni

  • Catalyzes the radical-mediated insertion of two sulfur atoms into the C-6 and C-8 positions of the octanoyl moiety bound to the lipoyl domains of lipoate-dependent enzymes, thereby converting the octanoylated domains into lipoylated derivatives.

Pathwayi

  • Pathwayi: protein lipoylation via endogenous pathway

    This protein is involved in step 2 of the subpathway that synthesizes protein N(6)-(lipoyl)lysine from octanoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein]. This subpathway is part of the pathway protein lipoylation via endogenous pathway, which is itself part of Protein modification.
    View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes protein N(6)-(lipoyl)lysine from octanoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein], the pathway protein lipoylation via endogenous pathway and in Protein modification.

Cofactori

  • [4Fe-4S] clusterNote: Binds 2 [4Fe-4S] clusters per subunit. One cluster is coordinated with 3 cysteines and an exchangeable S-adenosyl-L-methionine.
