Thiosulfate sulfurtransferase GlpE

Gene

glpE

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 4 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Catalyzes, although with low efficiency, the sulfur transfer reaction from thiosulfate to cyanide. The relatively low affinity of GlpE for both thiosulfate and cyanide suggests that these compounds are not the physiological substrates. Thioredoxin 1 or related dithiol proteins could instead be the physiological sulfur-acceptor substrate. Possible association with the metabolism of glycerol-phosphate remains to be elucidated.

Catalytic activityi

Thiosulfate + cyanide = sulfite + thiocyanate.
