- Selenocysteine lyase
enzymology, a selenocysteine lyase (EC number|22.214.171.124) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:L-selenocysteine + reduced acceptor selenide + L-alanine + acceptor
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are
L-selenocysteineand reduced acceptor, whereas its 3 products are selenide, L-alanine, and acceptor.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
lyases, specifically the class of carbon-sulfur lyases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-selenocysteine selenide-lyase (L-alanine-forming). Other names in common use include selenocysteine reductase, and selenocysteine beta-lyase. This enzyme participates in selenoamino acid metabolism. It employs one cofactor, pyridoxal phosphate.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|82047-76-5."
