BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
(R)-6-hydroxynicotine:oxygen oxidoreductase
Reaction(IUBMB)
(R)-6-hydroxynicotine + H2O + O2 = 1-(6-hydroxypyridin-3-yl)-4-(methylamino)butan-1-one + H2O2 (overall reaction) [RN:R07170];
(1a) (R)-6-hydroxynicotine + O2 = 5-(N-methyl-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrrol-2-yl)pyridin-2-ol + H2O2  [RN:R11050];
(1b) 5-(N-methyl-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrrol-2-yl)pyridin-2-ol + H2O = 1-(6-hydroxypyridin-3-yl)-4-(methylamino)butan-1-one (spontaneous) [RN:R11049]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
(R)-6-hydroxynicotine [CPD:C03043];
H2O [CPD:C00001];
O2 [CPD:C00007];
5-(N-methyl-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrrol-2-yl)pyridin-2-ol [CPD:C21075]
Product
1-(6-hydroxypyridin-3-yl)-4-(methylamino)butan-1-one [CPD:C01297];
H2O2 [CPD:C00027];
5-(N-methyl-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrrol-2-yl)pyridin-2-ol [CPD:C21075]
Comment
A flavoprotein (FAD). The enzyme, which participates in nicotine degradation, is specific for (R) isomer of 6-hydroxynicotine, derived from the uncommon (R)-nicotine. The bacterium Arthrobacter nicotinovorans, in which this enzyme was originally discovered, has a different enzyme that catalyses a similar reaction with the (S)-isomer (cf. EC 1.5.3.5, (S)-6-hydroxynicotine oxidase).
