L-cysteine desulfidase

Cat No.
EXWM-5330
Description
The enzyme from the archaeon Methanocaldococcus jannaschii contains a [4Fe-4S] cluster and is specific for L-cysteine (cf. EC 4.4.1.1, cystathionine γ-lyase). It cleaves a carbon-sulfur bond releasing sulfide and the unstable enamine product 2-aminoprop-2-enoate that tautomerizes to an imine form, which undergoes a hydrolytic deamination to form pyruvate and ammonia. The same reaction can also be catalysed by some pyridoxal-phosphate proteins (cf. EC 4.4.1.1, cystathionine γ-lyase).
Form
Liquid or lyophilized powder
Enzyme Commission Number
Storage
Store it at +4 ºC for short term. For long term storage, store it at -20 ºC~-80 ºC.
Synonyms
L-cysteine desulfhydrase
Reaction
L-cysteine + H2O = sulfide + NH3 + pyruvate (overall reaction); (1a) L-cysteine = 2-aminoprop-2-enoate + sulfide; (1b) 2-aminoprop-2-enoate = 2-iminopropanoate (spontaneous); (1c) 2-iminopropanoate + H2O = pyruvate + NH3 (spontaneous)
Notes
