Abstract

Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 pqqEF are genes required for synthesis of pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ). The nucleotide sequence of these genes indicates PqqE belongs to an endopeptidase family, including PqqF of Klebsiella pneumoniae, and M. extorquens AM1 PqqF has low identity with the same endopeptidase family. M. extorquens AM1 pqqE complemented a K. pneumoniae pqqF mutant.
