- Cellobiose dehydrogenase (acceptor)
enzymology, a cellobiose dehydrogenase (acceptor) (EC number|18.104.22.168) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:cellobiose + acceptor cellobiono-1,5-lactone + reduced acceptor
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are
cellobioseand acceptor, whereas its two products are cellobiono-1,5-lactoneand reduced acceptor.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with other acceptors. The systematic name of this enzyme class is cellobiose:acceptor 1-oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include cellobiose dehydrogenase, cellobiose oxidoreductase, Phanerochaete chrysosporium cellobiose oxidoreductase, CBOR, cellobiose oxidase, cellobiose:oxygen 1-oxidoreductase, CDH, and cellobiose:(acceptor) 1-oxidoreductase. It employs sometimes one cofactor, FAD, but in most cases both a heme and a FAD. It makes the enzyme to one of the more complex extracellulae oxidoreductases. It is produced by wood degrading organisms.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|54576-85-1."
