Description 2-amino-4-oxopentanoate thiolase
Notes A very compact and distinct family of enzymes from eubacteria, related to cysteine synthases (family and Cystathionine beta-synthases (
These sequences represent the beta subunit of the enzyme; in genomic clusters they are constantly accompanied by a smaller alpha subunit (not PLP dependent); e.g. ORTA_UNKP.
