Accepted name: S-sulfo-L-cysteine synthase (O-acetyl-L-serine-dependent)
Reaction: O-acetyl-L-serine + thiosulfate = S-sulfo-L-cysteine + acetate
For diagram of O3-Acetyl-L-serine metabolism, click here
Glossary: O-acetyl-L-serine = (2S)-3-acetyloxy-2-aminopropanoic acid
Other name(s): cysteine synthase B; cysM (gene name); CS26 (gene name)
Systematic name: O-acetyl-L-serine:thiosulfate 2-amino-2-carboxyethyltransferase
Comments: In plants, the activity is catalysed by a chloroplastic enzyme that plays an important role in chloroplast function and is essential for light-dependent redox regulation within the chloroplast. The bacterial enzyme also catalyses the activity of EC, cysteine synthase. cf. EC, S-sulfo-L-cysteine synthase (3-phospho-L-serine-dependent).
