The Stereochemical Course of Sulphate Activation and Transfer

  • Gordon Lowe
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 197)


The major source of sulphur in all sulphur-containing compounds in the biosphere, such as the amino acids cysteine and methionine, the coenzymes biotin, lipoic acid, thiamine pyrophosphate and coenzyme A, the redox reagent glutathione, etc., is inorganic sulphate. This inert, water soluble and widely available divalent anion is actively transported into cells but before it can participate in biochemical transformations it requires activation.
