ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.48

Accepted Name
Cystathionine gamma-synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Cystathionine synthase.
Cystathionine synthetase.
Homoserine O-transsuccinylase.
Homoserine transsuccinylase.
O-succinyl-L-homoserine succinate-lyase (adding cysteine).
O-succinylhomoserine (thiol)-lyase.
O-succinylhomoserine synthase.
O-succinylhomoserine synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
O(4)-succinyl-L-homoserine + L-cysteine <=> L-cystathionine + succinate
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • Also reacts with H(2)S and methanethiol as replacing agents, producing homocysteine and methionine, respectively.
  • In the absence of thiol, can also catalyze beta,gamma-elimination to form 2-oxobutanoate, succinate and ammonia.
  • Formerly EC 4.2.99.9.
