Name
tert-butyl alcohol monooxygenase;
mdpJK (gene names);

BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
tert-butyl alcohol,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase
Reaction(IUBMB)
tert-butyl alcohol + NADPH + H+ + O2 = 2-methylpropane-1,2-diol + NADP+ + H2O [RN:R11447]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
tert-butyl alcohol [CPD:C21389];
NADPH [CPD:C00005];
H+ [CPD:C00080];
O2 [CPD:C00007]
Product
2-methylpropane-1,2-diol [CPD:C21290];
NADP+ [CPD:C00006];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Comment
The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Aquincola tertiaricarbonis, is a Rieske nonheme mononuclear iron oxygenase. It can also act, with lower efficiency, on propan-2-ol, converting it to propane-1,2-diol. Depending on the substrate, the enzyme also catalyses EC 1.14.19.48, tert-amyl alcohol desaturase.
