ENZYME entry: EC 4.4.1.28

Accepted Name
L-cysteine desulfidase.
Alternative Name(s)
L-cysteine desulfhydrase.
Reaction catalysed
L-cysteine + H(2)O <=> sulfide + NH(3) + pyruvate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from the archaeon Methanocaldococcus jannaschii contains a [4Fe-4S] cluster and is specific for L-cysteine (cf. EC 4.4.1.1).
  • It cleaves a carbon-sulfur bond releasing sulfide and the unstable enamine product 2-aminoprop-2-enoate that tautomerizes to an imine form, which undergoes a hydrolytic deamination to form pyruvate and ammonia.
  • The same reaction can also be catalyzed by some pyridoxal-phosphate proteins (cf. EC 4.4.1.1).
