Reactions known to consume the compound:

glutathione-mediated detoxification II , sulfur volatiles biosynthesis :
a thiol + S-adenosyl-L-methionine → S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + a methyl thioether + H+

sulfur oxidation IV (intracellular sulfur) :
a perthiol + a [DsrE protein]-L-cysteine → a thiol + a [DsrE protein] persulfide
intracellular S0n + a thiol → intracellular S0n-1 + a perthiol

thiosulfate disproportionation I (thiol-dependent) :
thiosulfate + 2 a thiol → sulfite + hydrogen sulfide + a disulfide + H+

Reactions known to produce the compound:

glutathione-mediated detoxification I , glutathione-mediated detoxification II :
an L-cysteine-S-conjugate + H2O → a thiol + pyruvate + ammonium

Not in pathways:
a ubiquitin C-terminal thioester + H2O → a ubiquitin + a thiol
a ubiquitin C-terminal thioester + H2O → a ubiquitin + a thiol
a thioglucoside + H2O → a sugar + a thiol

In Reactions of unknown directionality:

Not in pathways:
an L-cysteine-S-conjugate = a thiol + 2-aminoprop-2-enoate + H+
3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate + a thiol = adenosine 3',5'-bisphosphate + S-alkyl thiosulfate
