Abstract

The full monty: The recently discovered thiol cofactor bacillithiol (BSH), its biosynthetic precursors, and its symmetrical disulfide are prepared in two ways. The fosfomycin resistance protein (FosB) is shown to be a BSH-utilizing enzyme. It displays bacillithiol-S-transferase activity with a strong preference for BSH over L-cysteine as its thiol substrate.
