Description O-acetylhomoserine (thiol)-lyase
Alternative names O-acetylhomoserine aminocarboxypropyltransferase;
Methionine synthase (ambiguous);
O-acetylhomoserine sulfhydrylase;
OAH sulfhydrylase;
Homocysteine synthase;
Catalyzed reaction O-acetyl-L-homoserine + methanethiol = L-methionine + acetate.
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate
Comments -!- Also reacts with other thiols or H(2)S, producing homocysteine or thioethers.
-!- The name methionine synthase is more commonly applied to EC
-!- An enzyme from baker's yeast also catalyzes the reaction of EC, more slowly.
Prosite PROSITE; PDOC00677;
Organisms -Eubacteria -Archea -Fungi
