Sulfate assimilation provides reduced sulfur for the synthesis of the amino acids cysteine and methionine and for a range of other metabolites. Sulfate has to be activated prior to the reduction by adenylation to adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate (APS). In plants, algae, and many bacteria this compound is reduced to sulfite by APS reductase; in fungi, some(More)
