BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
9H-carbazole,NAD(P)H:oxygen oxidoreductase (2,3-hydroxylating)
Reaction(IUBMB)
9H-carbazole + NAD(P)H + H+ + O2 = 2'-aminobiphenyl-2,3-diol + NAD(P)+ [RN:R05414 R09512]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
9H-carbazole [CPD:C08060];
NADH [CPD:C00004];
NADPH [CPD:C00005];
H+ [CPD:C00080];
O2 [CPD:C00007]
Product
2'-aminobiphenyl-2,3-diol [CPD:C08061];
NAD+ [CPD:C00003];
NADP+ [CPD:C00006]
Comment
This enzyme catalyses the first reaction in the pathway of carbazole degradation. The enzyme attacks at the 1 and 9a positions of carbazole, resulting in the formation of a highly unstable hemiaminal intermediate that undergoes a spontaneous cleavage and rearomatization, resulting in 2'-aminobiphenyl-2,3-diol. In most bacteria the enzyme is a complex composed of a terminal oxygenase, a ferredoxin, and a ferredoxin reductase. The terminal oxygenase component contains a nonheme iron centre and a Rieske [2Fe-2S] iron-sulfur cluster.
