Description Molybdenum cofactor sulfurtransferase
Alternative names molybdenum cofactor sulfurase;
MoCo sulfurase;
MoCo sulfurtransferase;
L-cysteine:molybdenum cofactor sulfurtransferase.
Catalyzed reaction molybdenum cofactor + L-cysteine + 2 H+ = thio-molybdenum cofactor + L-alanine + H2O
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments Contains pyridoxal phosphate. Replaces the equatorial oxo ligand of the molybdenum by sulfur via an enzyme-bound persulfide. The reaction occurs in prokaryotes and eukaryotes but MoCo sulfurtransferases are only found in eukaryotes. In prokaryotes the reaction is catalysed by two enzymes: cysteine desulfurase (EC, which is homologous to the N-terminus of eukaryotic MoCo sulfurtransferases, and a molybdo-enzyme specific chaperone which binds the MoCo and acts as an adapter protein.
These desulfurases are eukariotic multidomain enzymes involved in the sulfuration of molybdenum enzyzmes such as xanthine oxidase. Additional_domain JC7680 1-500
