O-acetylhomoserine/O-acetylserine sulfhydrylase (IPR006235)

Short name: OAc-hSer/O-AcSer_sulfhydrylase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This family of sequences is a distinct clade of the Cys/Met metabolism pyridoxal phosphate-dependent enzyme superfamily. Members include examples of OAH/OAS sulfhydrylase, an enzyme with activity both as O-acetylhomoserine sulfhydrylase (OAH, EC: and O-acetylserine sulfhydrylase (OAS, EC: [PMID: 8154184]. An alternate name for OAH sulfhydrylase is homocysteine synthase.

This family also includes sulfhydrylase FUB7, which is part of the gene cluster that mediates the biosynthesis of fusaric acid [PMID: 25372119].
