1. Serine transacetylase, O-acetylserine sulphydrylase and beta-cystathionase were purified from Paracoccus denitrificans strain 8944. 2. Serin transacetylase was purified 150-fold. The enzyme has a pH optimum between 7.5 and 8.0, is specific for L-serine and is inhibited by sulphydryl-group reagents. The apparent Km values for serine and acetyl-CoA are 4.0 - 10(-4) and 1.0 - 10(-4) M, respectively. Serine transacetylase is strongly inhibited by cysteine. 3. O-Acetylserine sulphydrylase was… 
Sulphur metabolism in Paracoccus denitrificans. Purification, properties and regulation of cysteinyl-and methionyl-tRNA synthetase.
Cysteinyl- and methionyl-tRNA synthetases (EC 6.11.-) were purified 1200- and 1000-fold, respectively, from sonic extracts of Paracoccus denitrificans strain 8944, and kinetics, substrate specificity
Purification and Characterization of Cystathionine (beta)-Lyase from Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris B78 and Its Possible Role in Flavor Development in Cheese
An enzyme that degrades sulfur-containing amino acids was purified from Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris B78; this strain was isolated from a mixed-strain, mesophilic starter culture used for the

TLDR
It seems that selenium-containing amino acids are excluded from proteins by a mechanism(s) other than substrate discrimination at the amino acid activation stage of protein synthesis.
Purification and physicochemical characterization of O-acetyl-l-serine sulfhydrylase from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
TLDR
L -Cyteine and l -Methionine are effective inhibitors of the OASSase activity, which is also inhibited by hydroxylamine and p-hydroxymercuribenzoate (pHMB).
Cystathionine β-lyase from Echinochloa colonum tissue culture
Abstract Cystathionine β-lyase (EC 4.4.1.8), the second enzyme unique to methionine biosynthesis, catalyses the α,β-elimination of cystathionine to yield homocysteine, pyruvate, and ammonia. The
beta-Cystathionase from Bordetella avium. Role(s) of lysine 214 and cysteine residues in activity and cytotoxicity.
TLDR
Toxicity assays performed with the various mutant proteins obtained by site-directed mutagenesis established that only catalytically active forms of beta-cystathionase were were cytotoxic for tissue culture cells.
Purification and characterization of cystathionine γ‐lyase from Lactobacillus fermentum DT41
A homo-tetrameric ca. 140-kDa cystathionine γ-lyase was purified to homogeneity from Lactobacillus fermentum DT41 by four chromatographic steps. This was the first enzyme responsible for amino acid
Biochemical and Pharmacokinetic Properties of PEGylated Cystathionine γ-Lyase from Aspergillus carneus KF723837
TLDR
CGL will be a promising enzyme against various cardiovascular diseases and antioxidant deficiency, as well as for generation of a neurotransmitter (H2S) in fungi, with higher affinity for L-cystathionine.
Cysteine biosynthesis in Lactobacillus casei: identification and characterization of a serine acetyltransferase
TLDR
This study found that various strains of L. casei grew in a chemically defined medium containing sulfide as the sole sulfur source, indicating the presence of a serine O-acetyltransferase and demonstrated that the gene annotated as metA in fact encodes the SAT function and should be annotation as cysE.
Role of d-Cysteine Desulfhydrase in the Adaptation of Escherichia coli to d-Cysteine*
TLDR
In agreement with a role of the desulfhydrase in sulfur metabolism, yedO expression was induced under conditions of sulfate limitation and growth protection against d-cysteine in minimal medium was conferred by the simultaneous addition of isoleucines, leucine, and valine.

Purification and characterization of L-serine transacetylase and O-acetyl-L-serine sulfhydrylase from kidney bean seedlings (Phaseolus vulgaris).
TLDR
Serine transacetylase and O -acetylserine sulfhydrylase have been purified over 50-fold from kidney bean seedlings by ammonium sulfate precipitation, and chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and Agarose gel filtration, and each enzyme was free of the other.
The purification and characterization of O-acetylserine sulfhydrylase-A from Salmonella typhimurium.
TLDR
Equilibrium sedimentation studies on native and carboxymethylated enzyme, analytical polyacrylamide disc gel electrophoresis in urea, pyridoxal phosphate analysis, tryptic peptide mapping, and amino acid analysis have shown that O-acetylserine sulfhydrylase-A consists of two identical subunits of molecular weight 34,000.
The control of sulphate reduction in Escherichia coli by O-acetyl-L-serine.
TLDR
Results suggest that O-acetylserine is necessary for synthesizing the enzymes of sulphate reduction in E. coli, and its action does not appear to be by interference with the repressive control exerted over these enzymes by cyst(e)ine.
Acetylhomoserine. An intermediate in the fungal biosynthesis of methionine.
TLDR
The acetyl ester of homoserine was found to be an intermediate in methionine biosynthesis in fungi, where it plays the role that O-succinylHomoserine does in bacteria, and cystathionine synthesis from succinylhomoserine in Neurospora appears to be catalyzed by γ-cystathIONase.
Sulfuration of O-acetylhomoserine and O-acetylserine by two enzyme fractions from spinach.
TLDR
The biosynthesis of methionines, ethionine, S-methylcysteine and S-ethylcysteines is shown to proceed when sulfide is replaced by methylmercaptan or ethylmercaptans, and the general process of sulfur incorporation is described.
Studies of l-Cysteine Biosynthetic Enzymes in Phaseolus vulgaris L.
TLDR
Sulfur-deficient plants were grown and total extractable serine transacetylase activity was not affected by sulfur deficiency; in contrast, there was an increase in O-acetylserine sulfhydrylase activity under these conditions.
O-acetyl-l-serine lyase: A new β-eliminase in extracts from higher plants
Abstract Extracts of Brassica species and Leucaena leucocephala seedlings contain an enzyme which degrades O -acetyl- l -serine. The enzyme has been partially purified from broccoli buds and cleaves
The catabolism of cystathionine by Escherichia coli.
SUMMARY: L-Cystathionine is rapidly degraded to homocysteine, pyruvate and ammonia by cell-free enzyme preparations of an auxotrophic strain of Escherichia coli which requires pyridoxin, glycine or
Acyl derivatives of homoserine as substrates for homocysteine synthesis in Neurospora crassa, yeast, and Escherichia coli.
TLDR
End product feedback inhibition by l-methionine on the homocysteine synthetases, when the substrates used were acyl derivatives of homoserine, is described for the enzymes from Neurospora and yeast, but was not demonstrated with the enzyme from E. coli.
