albendazole oxidase (misleading);
albendazole sulfoxidase (ambiguous);
FMO3 (gene name);
albendazole monooxygenase (flavin-containing)
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
albendazole,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase (sulfoxide-forming)
albendazole + NADPH + H+ + O2 = albendazole S-oxide + NADP+ + H2O [RN:
A microsomal flavin-containing monooxygenase. A similar conversion is also carried out by some microsomal cytochrome P-450 enzymes [EC
, albendazole monooxygenase (sulfoxide-forming)]. It is estimated that cytochrome P-450s are responsible for 70% of the activity.
