ENZYME entry: EC 3.1.6.20

Accepted Name
S-sulfosulfanyl-L-cysteine sulfohydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
  • H2O + S-sulfosulfanyl-L-cysteinyl-[SoxY protein] <=> H(+) + S-sulfanyl-L-cysteinyl-[SoxY protein] + sulfate
  • H2O + S-(2-sulfodisulfanyl)-L-cysteinyl-[SoxY protein] <=> H(+) + S-disulfanyl-L-cysteinyl-[SoxY protein] + sulfate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme is part of the Sox enzyme system, which participates in a bacterial thiosulfate oxidation pathway that produces sulfate.
  • It catalyzes two reactions in the pathway.
  • In both cases the enzyme hydrolyzes a sulfonate moiety that is bound (either directly or via a sulfane) to a cysteine residue of a SoxY protein, releasing sulfate.
  • The enzyme from Paracoccus pantotrophus contains a pyroglutamate (cycloglutamate) at its N-terminus.
