|L-cysteate + H(2)O <=> hydrogensulfite + pyruvate + NH(3)|
- The enzyme cleaves a carbon-sulfur bond, releasing bisulfite and an
unstable enamine product that tautomerizes to an imine form, which
undergoes a hydrolytic deamination to form pyruvate and ammonia.
- The latter reaction, which can occur spontaneously, can also be
catalyzed by EC 22.214.171.124.
- D-cysteine can also act as a substrate, but more slowly.
- It is converted into pyruvate, sulfide and ammonia.
- The inducible enzyme from Silicibacter pomeroyi DSS-3 forms part of
the cysteate-degradation pathway.
