Name
nitroalkane oxidase;
nitroethane oxidase;
NAO;
nitroethane:oxygen oxidoreductase
Class

Acting on other nitrogenous compounds as donors;
With oxygen as acceptor
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
nitroalkane:oxygen oxidoreductase
Reaction(IUBMB)
a nitroalkane + H2O + O2 = an aldehyde or ketone + nitrite + H2O2 [RN:R10388 R10389]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
nitroalkane [CPD:C06058];
H2O [CPD:C00001];
O2 [CPD:C00007]
Product
aldehyde [CPD:C00071];
ketone [CPD:C01450];
nitrite [CPD:C00088];
H2O2 [CPD:C00027]
Comment
Has an absolute requirement for FAD [4]. While nitroethane may be the physiological substrate [2], the enzyme also acts on several other nitroalkanes, including 1-nitropropane, 2-nitropropane, 1-nitrobutane, 1-nitropentane, 1-nitrohexane, nitrocyclohexane and some nitroalkanols [4]. Differs from EC 1.13.11.16, nitronate monooxygenase, in that the preferred substrates are neutral nitroalkanes rather than anionic nitronates [4].
