- L-cysteine + sulfite L-cysteate + hydrogen sulfide
This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the class of carbon-sulfur lyases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-cysteine hydrogen-sulfide-lyase (adding sulfite L-cysteate-forming). Other names in common use include cysteine (sulfite) lyase, and L-cysteine hydrogen-sulfide-lyase (adding sulfite). This enzyme participates in cysteine metabolism and taurine metabolism. It employs one cofactor, pyridoxal phosphate.
