From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Coenzyme F420 or 8-hydroxy-5-deazaflavin is a coenzyme involved in redox reactions in methanogens.[1] It is a flavin derivative. The coenzyme is a substrate for coenzyme F420 hydrogenase,[2] 5,10-methylenetetrahydromethanopterin reductase and methylenetetrahydromethanopterin dehydrogenase.[3][4]
