Background: Molybdenum cofactor (MoCo) is necessary for the function of all molybdoenzymes. The protein encoded by this gene adenylates and activates molybdopterin synthase, an enzyme required for biosynthesis of MoCo. This gene contains no introns. A pseudogene of this gene is present on chromosome 14.
