EC number
Accepted name
L-cysteine S-thiosulfotransferase
(1) [SoxY protein]-L-cysteine + thiosulfate + 2 ferricytochrome c = [SoxY protein]-S-sulfosulfanyl-L-cysteine + 2 ferrocytochrome c + 2 H+;;(2) [SoxY protein]-S-sulfanyl-L-cysteine + thiosulfate + 2 ferricytochrome c = [SoxY protein]-S-(2-sulfodisulfanyl)-L-cysteine + 2 ferrocytochrome c + 2 H+
Other name(s)
SoxXA, thiosulfate:[SoxY protein]-L-cysteine thiosulfotransferase
Systematic name
thiosulfate:[SoxY protein]-L-cysteine thiosulfonotransferase
The enzyme is part of the Sox enzyme system, which participates in a bacterial thiosulfate oxidation pathway that produces sulfate. It catalyses two reactions in the pathway - early in the pathway it attaches a thiosulfate molecule to the sulfur atom of an L-cysteine of a SoxY protein; later it transfers a second thiosulfate molecule to a sulfane group that is already attached to the same cysteine residue.
