The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: sulfoacetaldehyde reductase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: isfD (gene name)

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): 1.2935181Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Catalyses the reaction only in the opposite direction. The bacterium Chromohalobacter salexigens DSM 3043 possesses two enzymes that catalyse this reaction, a constitutive enzyme (encoded by isfD2) and an inducible enzyme (encoded by isfD). The latter is induced by taurine, and is responsible for most of the activity observed in taurine-grown cells.
