ENZYME entry: EC 2.8.1.7

Accepted Name
Cysteine desulfurase.
Alternative Name(s)
Cysteine desulfurylase.
Reaction catalysed
L-cysteine + acceptor <=> L-alanine + S-sulfanyl-acceptor
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • The sulfur from free L-cysteine is first transferred to a cysteine residue in the active site, and then passed on to various other acceptors.
  • The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of iron-sulfur clusters, thio-nucleosides in tRNA, thiamine, biotin, lipoate and pyranopterin (molybdopterin).
  • In Azotobacter vinelandii, this sulfur provides the inorganic sulfide required for nitrogenous metallocluster formation.
