EC 2.8.1.16     
Accepted name: L-aspartate semialdehyde sulfurtransferase
Reaction: hydrogen sulfide + L-aspartate 4-semialdehyde + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H+ = L-homocysteine + H2O + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster
Other name(s): MA1821 (locus name); MJ0100 (locus name)
Systematic name: hydrogen sulfide:L-aspartate-4-semialdehyde sulfurtransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the archaeon Methanosarcina acetivorans, participates in an L-methionine biosysnthetic pathway found in most of the methanogenic archaea.
