Accepted name: thiohydroximate-O-sulfate sulfate/sulfur-lyase (nitrile-forming)
Reaction: an N-(sulfonatooxy)alkanimidothioate = a nitrile + sulfate + sulfur
Glossary: an N-(sulfonatooxy)alkanimidothioate = a thiohydroximate-O-sulfate
Other name(s): NSP (gene name); nitrile-specifier protein
Systematic name: thiohydroximate-O-sulfate sulfate/sulfur-lyase (nitrile-forming)
Comments: The enzyme is involved in the breakdown of glucosinolates. It can act on both aliphatic and aromatic glucosinolates, and forms nitrile-containing products. cf. EC, N-(sulfonatooxy)alkenimidothioic acid sulfate-lyase (epithionitrile-forming), and EC, phenyl-N-(sulfonatooxy)methanimidothioate sulfolyase.
