Cysteine Synthase

Known as: O(3)-Acetyl-L-serine acetate-lyase (adding hydrogen sulfide), O Acetylserine Sulfhydrylase, Sulfhydrylase, O-Acetylserine 
An enzyme that catalyzes the biosynthesis of cysteine in microorganisms and plants from O-acetyl-L-serine and hydrogen sulfide. This enzyme was… (More)
