ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.73

Accepted Name
O-phospho-L-seryl-tRNA:Cys-tRNA synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Sep-tRNA:Cys-tRNA synthase.
SepCysS.
Reaction catalysed
O-phospho-L-seryl-tRNA(Cys) + sulfide <=> L-cysteinyl-tRNA(Cys) + phosphate
Comment(s)
  • In organisms like Archaeoglobus fulgidus lacking EC 6.1.1.16 for the direct Cys-tRNA(Cys) formation, Cys-tRNA(Cys) is produced by an indirect pathway, in which EC 6.1.1.27 ligates O-phosphoserine to tRNA(Cys), and EC 2.5.1.73 converts the produced O-phospho-L-seryl- tRNA(Cys) to Cys-tRNA(Cys).
  • The SepRS/SepCysS pathway is the sole route for cysteine biosynthesis in the organism.
  • Methanosarcina mazei can use both pathways, the direct route using EC 6.1.1.16 and the indirect pathway with EC 6.1.1.27 and EC 2.5.1.73.
  • Formerly EC 2.5.1.n3.
