Unknown PEB lyase or lyase-isomerase
In marine PE-containing Synechococcus strains, PEB are found at Cys-139 of alpha-PEI and PUB at Cys-140 and Cys-75 of alpha-PEII (Ong & Glazer 1991), as well as on PEII-associated linker polypeptides (Wilbanks & Glazer 1993b; Six et al. 2005), with no obvious candidate lyase-isomerase identified for these functions so far (Grébert et al. 2022). So these sites, which interestingly are absent from the PE-III of most Prochlorococcus strains, might either be auto-catalytically chromophorylated or the chromophore linkage catalyzed by a yet-to-be characterized lyase or lyase-isomerase.
