Accepted name: [CysO sulfur-carrier protein]-thiocarboxylate-dependent cysteine synthase
Reaction: O-phospho-L-serine + [CysO sulfur-carrier protein]-Gly-NH-CH2-C(O)SH = [CysO sulfur-carrier protein]-Gly-NH-CH2-C(O)-S-L-cysteine + phosphate
Other name(s): CysM
Systematic name: O-phospho-L-serine:thiocarboxylated [CysO sulfur-carrier protein] 2-amino-2-carboxyethyltransferase
Comments: A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. The enzyme participates in an alternative pathway for L-cysteine biosynthesis that involves a protein-bound thiocarboxylate as the sulfide donor. The enzyme from the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis also has very low activity with O3-acetyl-L-serine (cf. EC, O-phosphoserine sulfhydrylase).
