Cysteine synthesis by Desulfovibrio vulgaris extracts.

Abstract

Extracts of Desulfovibrio vulgaris were found to contain serine transacetylase and cysteine synthase activities. When extracts were incubated with bisulfite and o-acetylserine, or acetyl coenzyme A plus L-serine, under a hydrogen atmosphere, cysteine was formed. Pyruvate served as a reductant for bisulfite reduction to sulfide and concomitantly provided the acetyl moiety for acetyl coenzyme A formation. Consequently, when extracts were incubated with pyruvate, bisulfite, and L-serine, cysteine synthesis resulted.
