A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC 1.8.5.4

Accepted Name
Bacterial sulfide:quinone reductase.
Alternative Name(s)
Sulfide:quinone reductase.
Reaction catalysed
n sulfide + n quinone <=> polysulfide + n quinol
Cofactor(s)
FAD.
Comment(s)
  • Ubiquinone, plastoquinone or menaquinone can act as acceptor in different species.
  • This enzyme catalyzes the formation of sulfur globules.
  • It repeats the catalytic cycle without releasing the product, producing a polysulfide of up to 10 sulfur atoms.
  • The reaction stops when the maximum length of the polysulfide that can be accommodated in the sulfide oxidation pocket is achieved.
  • The enzyme also plays an important role in anoxygenic bacterial photosynthesis.
  • Cf. EC 1.8.5.8.
