- Thiosulfate-thiol sulfurtransferase
enzymology, a thiosulfate-thiol sulfurtransferase (EC number|220.127.116.11) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:thiosulfate + 2 glutathione sulfite + glutathione disulfide + sulfide
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are
thiosulfateand glutathione, whereas its 3 products are sulfite, glutathione disulfide, and sulfide.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically the sulfurtransferases, which transfer sulfur-containing groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is thiosulfate:thiol sulfurtransferase. Other names in common use include glutathione-dependent thiosulfate reductase, sulfane reductase, and sulfane sulfurtransferase. This enzyme participates in glutathione metabolism.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|111070-24-7."
