ENZYME entry: EC 6.1.1.27

Accepted Name
O-phosphoserine--tRNA ligase.
Alternative Name(s)
O-phosphoseryl-tRNA ligase.
SepRS.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + O-phospho-L-serine + tRNA(Cys) <=> AMP + diphosphate + O-phospho-L-seryl-tRNA(Cys)
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 6.1.1.n2.
