Cover illustration: The asymetric unit of MbnF: an NAPDPH-dependent flavin monoxygenase from Methylocystis strain SB2 [Stewart et al. (2023), Acta Cryst. F79, 111–118]. Methanobactins are peptides produced by methanotrophs for copper acquisition. Although the exact biosynthetic pathway of methanobactin formation is not fully understood, MbnF is a protein associated with a methanobactin gene cluster. In this report, structural and functional studies of MbnF are used to gain insight into methanobactin biosynthesis.
