BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
rifampicin:NAD(P)H:oxygen oxidoreductase (2'-N-hydroxyrifampicin-forming)
Reaction(IUBMB)
rifampicin + NAD(P)H + O2 = 2'-N-hydroxyrifampicin + NAD(P)+ + H2O [RN:R11151 R11152]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
rifampicin [CPD:C06688];
NADH [CPD:C00004];
NADPH [CPD:C00005];
O2 [CPD:C00007]
Product
2'-N-hydroxyrifampicin [CPD:C21143];
NAD+ [CPD:C00003];
NADP+ [CPD:C00006];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Comment
The enzyme has been found in the Corynebacteria Rhodococcus equi and Nocardia farcinica. It confers increased resistance to the antibiotic rifampicin by initiating its degradation.
