The E1-like superfamily is central to ubiquitin (Ub) conjugation, biosynthesis of cysteine, thiamine, and MoCo, and several secondary metabolites. Yet, its functional diversity and evolutionary history is not well understood. We develop a natural classification of this superfamily and use it to decipher the major adaptive trends occurring in the evolution of the E1-like superfamily. Within the Rossmann fold, E1-like proteins are closest to NAD(P)/FAD-dependent dehydrogenases and S-AdoMet… CONTINUE READING
