Description

Homoserine O-succinyltransferase (HST) also known as homoserine O-transsuccinylase (HTS), catalyses the first step in the biosynthesis of methionine [PMID: 17442255]: Succinyl-CoA + L-homoserine = CoA + O-succinyl-L-homoserine

This family also includes serine acetyltransferase CysE from Lactobacillus casei, which catalyses the formation of O-acetyl serine from L-serine and acetyl-CoA, and is involved in cysteine biosynthesis [PMID: 26790714].
