Recent studies have indicated that post-translational flavinylation of succinate dehydrogenase subunit A (SdhA) in eukaryotes and bacteria require the chaperone-like proteins Sdh5 and SdhE, respectively. How does covalent flavinylation occur in prokaryotes, which lack SdhE homologs? In this study, I showed that covalent flavinylation in two hyperthermophilic bacteria/archaea lacking SdhE, Thermus thermophilus and Sulfolobus tokodaii, requires heat and dicarboxylic acid. These thermophilic bacteria/archaea inhabit hot environments and are said to be genetically far removed from mesophilic bacteria which possess SdhE. Since mesophilic bacteria have been effective at covalent bonding in temperate environments, they may have caused the evolution of SdhE.
