Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Protein: CSD sulfur transfer protein

Gene: csdE Accession Numbers: G7455 (EcoCyc), b2811, ECK2807

Synonyms: ygdK

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Regulation summary diagram for csdE

Subunit composition of CSD sulfur transfer protein = [CsdE]2
         CSD sulfur transfer protein = CsdE

CsdA and CsdE combine to form the CSD sulfur transfer system. CsdA activity doubles in the presence of CsdE, which contains a cysteine residue (C61) that acts to accept sulfur liberated via the desulfinase activity of CsdA [Loiseau05]. CsdE also interacts with and may be able to transfer sulfur to CsdL [Trotter09].

An NMR solution structure of CsdE has been solved [Liu05a]. CsdE migrates as a dimer on a gel filtration column [Loiseau05].

CsdE: "cysteine sulfinate desulfinase"

Locations: cytosol

Map Position: [2,942,564 -> 2,943,007] (63.42 centisomes, 228°)
Length: 444 bp / 147 aa

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 15.94 kD (from nucleotide sequence)
