cysteine-S-conjugate beta-lyase activity

Known as: L-cysteine-S-conjugate thiol-lyase (deaminating) activity, glutamine transaminase K/cysteine conjugate beta-lyase activity, cysteine-S-conjugate b-lyase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: RS-CH2-CH(NH3+)COO- = RSH + NH3 + pyruvate. [EC:4.4.1.13, MetaCyc:CYSTEINE-S-CONJUGATE-BETA-LYASE-RXN]
