Flavins are active components of many enzymes. In most cases, riboflavin (vitamin B2) as a coenzyme represents the catalytic part of the holoenzyme. Riboflavin is an amphiphatic molecule and allows a large variety of different interactions with the enzyme itself and also with the substrate. A great number of active riboflavin analogs can readily be synthesized by chemical methods and, thus, a large number of possible inhibitors for many different enzyme targets is conceivable. As mammalian and… Expand
Natural riboflavin analogs.
TLDR
Riboflavin analogs have a good potential to serve as basic structures for the development of novel anti-infectives and could constitute tools for cellular chemistry, thus allowing a further extension of the catalytic spectrum of flavoenzymes. Expand
Riboflavin analogs as antiinfectives: occurrence, mode of action, metabolism and resistance.
TLDR
The identification of the structural riboflavin(vitamin B2) analog rose oflavin in Streptomyces davawensis demonstrates that anti-vitamins/cofactor analogs may serve as lead structures for the development of novel antibiotics. Expand
Genetic Control of Biosynthesis and Transport of Riboflavin and Flavin Nucleotides and Construction of Robust Biotechnological Producers†
TLDR
Whereas earlier RF overproducers were isolated by classical selection, current producers of riboflavin and flavin nucleotides have been developed using modern approaches of metabolic engineering that involve overexpression of structural and regulatory genes of the RF biosynthetic pathway as well as genes involved in the overproduction of the purine precursor of rib oflavin, GTP.

TLDR
Detailed structural comparisons revealed that the two consecutive carbonyl backbones that occur prior to the PCXXC signature constitute a binding hole for the target amino group of the substrate, which is essential in B. subtilis RibG and is also conserved in the RNA/DNA-editing deaminases. Expand
Riboflavin Biosynthetic and Regulatory Factors as Potential Novel Anti‐Infective Drug Targets
TLDR
A compendium of chemical modulators of riboflavin biosynthesis and regulatory networks is listed and demonstrates the promise of riboswitch regulatory mechanisms as potential therapeutic targets for novel antibiotic drug discovery. Expand
The antibiotics roseoflavin and 8-demethyl-8-amino-riboflavin from Streptomyces davawensis are metabolized by human flavokinase and human FAD synthetase.
TLDR
It is suggested that AF has a lower toxic potential and may be better suited as a lead structure to develop antimicrobial compounds. Expand
Truncated FAD synthetase for direct biocatalytic conversion of riboflavin and analogs to their corresponding flavin mononucleotides.
TLDR
The FAD synthetase from Corynebacterium ammoniagenes is engineered by deleting its N-terminal adenylation domain and the newly created biocatalyst is stable and efficient for direct and quantitative phosphorylation of riboflavin and rib oflavin analogs to their corresponding FMN cofactors at preparative-scale. Expand
The Bifunctional Flavokinase/Flavin Adenine Dinucleotide Synthetase from Streptomyces davawensis Produces Inactive Flavin Cofactors and Is Not Involved in Resistance to the Antibiotic Roseoflavin
TLDR
It was hypothesized that a flavokinase/FAD synthetase (RibC) highly specific for riboflavin may be present in S. davawensis, which would not allow the formation of toxic RoFMN/RoFAD. Expand
The bifunctional flavokinase/FAD synthetase from Streptomyces davawensis produces inactive flavin cofactors and is not involved in resistance to the antibiotic roseoflavin
1 2 Streptomyces davawensis synthesizes the antibiotic roseoflavin, one of the few known 3 natural riboflavin-analogs, and is roseoflavin resistant. It is thought that the endogenous 4 flavokinaseExpand
Synthetic studies directed towards hunanamycin, teixobactin and telomycin antibiotic natural products and their analogues
The emergence of bacteria resistant to all clinically approved antibiotics has led to a worldwide search for new drugs. Without new antibiotics many aspects of modern medicine would become nearlyExpand

Crystal structure of riboflavin synthase.
TLDR
The three active sites of the trimer are proposed to lie between pairs of monomers in which residues conserved among species reside, including two Asp-His-Ser triads and dyads of Cys-Ser and His-Thr. Expand
Biosynthesis of riboflavin: lumazine synthase and riboflavin synthase.

6,7-Dimethyl-8-ribityllumazine is developed as the direct biosynthetic precursor of riboflavin, and the lumazine derivative is converted to rib oflavin by the enzyme ribOflavin synthase. Expand
Biosynthesis of flavocoenzymes.
TLDR
The biosynthesis of one riboflavin molecule requires one molecule of GTP and two molecules of ribulose 5-phosphate to produce 5-amino-6-ribitylamino-2,4(1H,3H)-pyrimidinedione, which is recycled in the biosynthetic pathway. Expand
