Accepted Name
Isethionate sulfite-lyase.
Reaction catalysed
Isethionate <=> acetaldehyde + sulfite
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the human gut bacterium Bilophila wadsworthia, participates in a taurine degradation pathway that leads to sulfide production.
  • The active form of the enzyme contains a glycyl radical that is generated by a dedicated activating enzyme via chemistry involving S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) and a [4Fe-4S] cluster.
