Basic Information

Enzyme Number

4.1.1.29

Official Name

sulfinoalanine decarboxylase

Name from literature

cysteine sulfinate decarboxylase

Pathway from literature

the biosynthesis of taurine

Pathway from KEGG

Metabolism of Other Amino Acids; Taurine and hypotaurine metabolism; map00430

Organisms

Rat (10116)

Genome localization

7q36[60356 ],

Comments

A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. Also acts on L-cysteate. The 1992 edition of the Enzyme List erroneously gave the name sulfoalanine decarboxylase to this enzyme.

Rate-limiting Description

"In the present study, gene expression of rate-limiting enzyme for taurine biosynthesis, cysteine sulfinate decarboxylase (CSD) were examined in rat mammary gland." (10993179)
