YkgEFG is homologous to the B. subtilis LutABC oxidative lactate catabolism putative electron chain, but ykgEFG does not complement lutABC, perhaps indicating a lactate-related compound is catabolized by YkgEFG; a ykgF mutant is still able to utilize lactate, presumably utilizing LldPRD function (Chai, 2009). YkgF is comprised of a LutB family domain (Pfam PF02589), followed by a 4Fe-4S dicluster domain (PF13183) and a C-terminal DUF3390 domain (PF11870); the LutC family domain (Pfam PF02589) belongs to a 5-formyltetrahydrofolate cyclo-ligase-like superfamily (InterPro IPR024185) and a NagB/RpiA/CoA transferase-like structural clan (Superfamily SSF100950).
