This view shows enzymes only for those organisms listed below, in the list of taxa known to possess the pathway. If an enzyme name is shown in bold, there is experimental evidence for this enzymatic activity.
Synonyms: transsulfuration pathway
|Superclasses:||Activation/Inactivation/Interconversion → Interconversions|
|Biosynthesis → Amino Acids Biosynthesis → Proteinogenic Amino Acids Biosynthesis → L-cysteine Biosynthesis|
Some taxa known to possess this pathway include : Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Trans-sulfuration pathways allow the interconversion of L-homocysteine and L-cysteine via L-cystathionine. In contrast to enteric bacteria and mammals, Saccharomyces cerevisiae has two transsulfuration pathways employing two separate sets of enzymes [Thomas97].
Variants: L-cysteine biosynthesis I, L-cysteine biosynthesis II (tRNA-dependent), L-cysteine biosynthesis III (from L-homocysteine), L-cysteine biosynthesis V, superpathway of L-cysteine biosynthesis (mammalian)
