Name  Sulphate adenylyltransferase Short Name  Sulphate_adenylyltransferase
Type  Domain Description  Sulphate adenylyltransferase or ATP-sulfurylase () forms adenosine 5'-phosphosulphate (APS) from ATP and free sulphate, the first step in the formation of the activated sulphate donor 3'-phosphoadenylylsulphate (PAPS) []. In some cases, it is found in a bifunctional protein in which the other domain, adenosyl phosphosulphate (APS) kinase, catalyses the second and final step, the phosphorylation of APS to PAPS []. The combined ATP sulfurylase/APS kinase may be called PAPS synthase. Members of this family also include the dissimilatory sulphate adenylyltransferase (sat) of the sulphate reducer Archaeoglobus fulgidus.
