Reaction: FAD + [protein]-L-threonine = [protein]-FMN-L-threonine + AMP
Glossary: FMN = flavin mononucleotide = riboflavin-5′-phosphate
Other name(s): flavin transferase; apbE (gene name)
Systematic name: FAD:protein riboflavin-5′-phosphate transferase
Comments: The enzyme catalyses the transfer of the FMN portion of FAD and its covalent binding to the hydroxyl group of an L-threonine residue in a target flavin-binding protein such as the B and C subunits of EC 184.108.40.206, NADH:ubiquinone reductase (Na+-transporting). Requires Mg2+.
