3-sulfino-L-alanine carboxy-lyase
Systematic name:
3-sulfino-L-alanine carboxy-lyase (hypotaurine-forming)

Reactions

Cofactor

Comments:

A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. Also acts on L-cysteate. The 1992 edition of the Enzyme List erroneously gave the name sulfoalanine decarboxylase to this enzyme.
