Dialyzed extracts of the mutants of Pichia guilliermondii RG80 (rib3, his-) and RA39 (rib3, ade-) in which the third step of flavinogenesis was genetically blocked converted GTP into 2,5-diamino-6-hydroxy-4-ribitylaminopyrimidine phosphate and 2,5-diamino-6-hydroxy-4-ribitylaminopyrimidine in the presence of NADPH2. Apparently, 2,5-diamino-6-hydroxy-4-ribitylaminopyrimidine phosphate is a true precursor of riboflavin whereas 2,5-diamino-6-hydroxy-4-ribitylaminopyrimidine is formed upon its hydrolysis.
