Name
phenylacetone monooxygenase;
PAMO
Class

Acting on paired donors, with incorporation or reduction of molecular oxygen;
With NADH or NADPH as one donor, and incorporation of one atom of oxygen into the other donor
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
phenylacetone,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase
Reaction(IUBMB)
phenylacetone + NADPH + H+ + O2 = benzyl acetate + NADP+ + H2O [RN:R07201]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
phenylacetone [CPD:C15512];
NADPH [CPD:C00005];
H+ [CPD:C00080];
O2 [CPD:C00007]
Product
benzyl acetate [CPD:C15513];
NADP+ [CPD:C00006];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Comment
A flavoprotein (FAD). NADH cannot replace NADPH as coenzyme. In addition to phenylacetone, which is the best substrate found to date, this Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenase can oxidize other aromatic ketones [1-(4-hydroxyphenyl)propan-2-one, 1-(4-hydroxyphenyl)propan-2-one and 3-phenylbutan-2-one], some alipatic ketones (e.g. dodecan-2-one) and sulfides (e.g. 1-methyl-4-(methylsulfanyl)benzene).
