The main reaction catalyzed by rhodanase is not the name-giving detoxification of cyanide to thiocyanate, but the transfer of a sulfur atom from SQR-S-SH onto sulfite yielding thiosulfate during sulfide oxidation. The activity of human rhodanase was inferred from the rat orthologue by Hildebrandt & Grieshaber, 2008.
