ENZYME: 2.8.4.2


ID   2.8.4.2
DE   Arsenate-mycothiol transferase.
CA   Arsenate + mycothiol = arseno-mycothiol + H(2)O.
CC   -!- Reduction of arsenate is part of a defense mechanism of the cell
CC       against toxic arsenate.
CC   -!- The product arseno-mycothiol is reduced by EC 1.20.4.3 (mycoredoxin)
CC       to arsenite and mycothiol-mycoredoxin disulfide.
CC   -!- Finally, a second mycothiol recycles mycoredoxin and forms
CC       mycothione.
