O-acetylhomoserine (thiol)-lyase activity

Known as: L-methionine formation, direct, from O-acetyl-L-homoserine, O-acetyl-L-homoserine:methanethiol 3-amino-3-carboxypropyltransferase activity, L-methionine synthesis, direct, from O-acetyl-L-homoserine 
Catalysis of the reaction: O-acetyl-L-homoserine + methanethiol = L-methionine + acetate. Also reacts with other thiols and H2S, producing…
