Abstract

The results of studies on the substrate specificities of elimination and replacement reactions allowed insight into the active and regulatory sites of Streptomyces phaeochromogenes cystathionine γ-lyase l-cystathionine cysteine-lyase (deaminating), EC 4.4.1.1). The enzyme has an active site and a regulatory site. The active site consists of two subsites; one recognizes the l-forms of animo acids (l-homoserine and l-moieties of cystathionine isomers) and the other shows affinity for thiol compounds with a carboxyl group. The regulatory site is specific for l-cysteine and has no affinity for ordinary thiol compounds, such as 3-mercaptopropionate and thioglycolate.
