EC Details
EC number
Accepted name
arsenate-mycothiol transferase
arsenate + mycothiol = arseno-mycothiol + H2O
Other name(s)
ArsC1, ArsC2, mycothiol:arsenate transferase
Systematic name
mycothiol:arsenate S-arsenotransferase
Reduction of arsenate is part of a defence mechanism of the cell against toxic arsenate. The product arseno-mycothiol is reduced by EC (mycoredoxin) to arsenite and mycothiol-mycoredoxin disulfide. Finally, a second mycothiol recycles mycoredoxin and forms mycothione.
