EC Number: 188.8.131.52
In Pathway: cysteine biosynthesis II (RNA-dependent)
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: The right side is missing: H: 1
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: O-phospho-L-serine—tRNA ligase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: O-phosphoseryl-tRNA ligase, non-canonical O-phosphoseryl-tRNA synθse, SepRS
Enzyme Commission Summary:
In organisms like Archaeoglobus fulgidus lacking EC 184.108.40.206 (canonical cysteinyl-tRNA synthetase) for the direct Cys-tRNACys formation, Cys-tRNACys is produced by an indirect pathway, in which O-phosphoseryl-tRNA ligase ligates the noncanonical amino acid O-phosphoserine to tRNACys, and the Sep-tRNA:Cys-tRNA synthase converts the produced Sep-tRNACys to Cys-tRNACys, the SepRS/SepCysS pathway is the sole route for cysteine biosynthesis in the organism [Fukunaga07]. Methanosarcina mazei can use both pathways, the canonical route using EC 220.127.116.11 and the indirect pathway [Hauenstein08].
