ENZYME entry: EC 2.8.1.9

Accepted Name
Molybdenum cofactor sulfurtransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
MoCo sulfurase.
MoCo sulfurtransferase.
Molybdenum cofactor sulfurase.
Reaction catalysed
Molybdenum cofactor + L-cysteine + reduced acceptor + 2 H(+) <=> thio-molybdenum cofactor + L-alanine + H(2)O + oxidized acceptor
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • Replaces the equatorial oxo ligand of the molybdenum by sulfur via an enzyme-bound persulfide.
  • The reaction occurs in prokaryotes and eukaryotes but MoCo sulfurtransferases are only found in eukaryotes.
  • In prokaryotes the reaction is catalyzed by two enzymes: EC 2.8.1.7, which is homologous to the N-terminus of eukaryotic MoCo sulfurtransferases, and a molybdo-enzyme specific chaperone which binds the MoCo and acts as an adapter protein.
