TST


thiosulfate sulfurtransferase


ENTREZID: 7263 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 22q12.3

OMIM: 616996


Summary Entrez
This is one of two neighboring genes encoding similar proteins that each contain two rhodanese domains. The encoded protein is localized to the mitochondria and catalyzes the conversion of thiosulfate and cyanide to thiocyanate and sulfite. In addition, the protein interacts with 5S ribosomal RNA and facilitates its import into the mitochondria. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]
