Namesulfopyruvate biosynthesis via L-cysteate
DescriptionTwo different pathways for coenzyme M biosynthesis pass through the intermediate sulfopyruvate. This Genome Property describes a pathway for the creation of sulfopyruvate via L-cysteate. Cysteate synthase converts L-phosphoserine to L-cysteate. An aspartate aminotransferase (not represented explicitly in this Genome Property) can then convert L-cysteate to sulfopyruvate.
