CDO1 (cysteine dioxygenase, type I) belongs to the cysteine dioxygenase family and is involved in organosulfur biosynthesis. CDO1 functions as a dioxygenase that uses iron and zinc as cofactors to catalyze the conversion of L-cysteine and oxygen to 3-sulfinoalanine. CDO1 exists as a monomer and is expressed at high levels in liver and placenta and at lower levels in brain, pancreas and heart. CDO1 is involved in pyruvate-, sulfate- and taurine-related metabolic pathways and is a crucial regulator of cysteine concentrations within the cell.
