Accepted name: cysteate synthase
Reaction: O-phospho-L-serine + sulfite = L-cysteate + phosphate
Other name(s): sulfite:O-phospho-L-serine sulfotransferase (phosphate-hydrolysing, L-cysteate-forming)
Systematic name: sulfite:O-phospho-L-serine sulfonotransferase (phosphate-hydrolysing, L-cysteate-forming)
Comments: A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. It is highly specific for O-phospho-L-serine and sulfite. The reaction proceeds through a dehydroalanine (2-aminoacrylic acid) intermediate. The enzyme from Methanosarcina acetivorans is evolutionarily related to threonine synthase (EC, but the reaction is more similar to that of O-phosphoserine sulfhydrylase (EC
