8. 1. 1) were used to determine whether the 4 cysteine residues in the native structure could cooperate in reactions. The sulfhydryl reactivity of persulfide-containing (ES) rhodanese was not significantly changed when cysteine residues at positions 63, 254, and 263 were replaced by serine, either individually or in combination. However, the sulfhydryl reactivity of persulfide-free (E) rhodanese was enhanced when Cys-254 was mutated.

Biol. Chem. 263, 11516-11522). The cleavage of the wild-type proenzyme occurs rapidly with a half-time on the order of 2 min. When Ser-254 is changed to cysteine (S254C), threonine (S254T), or alanine (S254A) by site-directed mutagenesis, the rate of processing of the proenzyme and the production of the functional enzyme are drastically affected. Proenzymes with S254C or S254T are cleaved with a half-time of around 2-4 h while the S254A proenzyme does not undergo processing.
