Abstract

The catabolic pathway for flavodoxin has yet to be clarified for any bacterial species. In this study, we found that the flavin mononucleotide in the flavodoxin of Helicobacter pylori is degraded to riboflavin via the phosphomonoesterase activity of class C acid phosphatase. The result is a conversion of holoflavodoxin to apoflavodoxin.
