Family relationships


This entry represents a family of bacterial D-cysteine desulphydrases, which are responsible for the decomposition of D-cysteine, which is a powerful inhibitor of E. coli growth. D-cysteine is decomposed into pyruvate, H2S and NH3 [PMID: 11527960], and restricts growth through inhibition of key amino acid biosynthethis.
