Acting on paired donors, with incorporation or reduction of molecular oxygen;
With reduced flavin or flavoprotein as one donor, and incorporation of one atom of oxygen into the other donor
The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Streptomyces viridifaciens, is part of a two component system that also includes a flavin reductase, which provides reduced flavin mononucleotide for this enzyme. The enzyme, which is involved in the biosynthesis of the azoxy antibiotic valanimycin, has a similar activity with either FMNH2 or FADH2. It exhibits broad specificity, and also accepts propan-1-amine, butan-1-amine, butan-2-amine and benzylamine.
