Glossary: O-acetyl-L-serine = (2S)-3-acetyloxy-2-aminopropanoic acid
Other name(s): O-acetyl-L-serine sulfhydrylase; O-acetyl-L-serine sulfohydrolase; O-acetylserine (thiol)-lyase; O-acetylserine (thiol)-lyase A; O-acetylserine sulfhydrylase; O3-acetyl-L-serine acetate-lyase (adding hydrogen-sulfide); acetylserine sulfhydrylase; cysteine synthetase; S-sulfocysteine synthase; 3-O-acetyl-L-serine:hydrogen-sulfide 2-amino-2-carboxyethyltransferase; O3-acetyl-L-serine:hydrogen-sulfide 2-amino-2-carboxyethyltransferase
Systematic name: O-acetyl-L-serine:hydrogen-sulfide 2-amino-2-carboxyethyltransferase
Comments: A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. Some alkyl thiols, cyanide, pyrazole and some other heterocyclic compounds can act as acceptors. Not identical with EC (β-pyrazolylalanine synthase), EC (L-mimosine synthase) and EC (uracilylalanine synthase).
