- Phenylalanine 2-monooxygenase
enzymology, a phenylalanine 2-monooxygenase (EC number|126.96.36.199) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:L-phenylalanine + O2 2-phenylacetamide + CO2 + H2O
This enzyme belongs to the family of
oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on single donors with O2 as oxidant and incorporation of two atoms of oxygen into the substrate (oxygenases). The oxygen incorporated need not be derived from O with incorporation of one atom of oxygen (internal monooxygenases o internal mixed-function oxidases). The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-phenylalanine:oxygen 2-oxidoreductase (decarboxylating). Other names in common use include L-phenylalanine oxidase (deaminating and decarboxylating), and phenylalanine (deaminating, decarboxylating)oxidase. This enzyme participates in phenylalanine metabolism.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|84012-76-0."
