Name
4-methoxybenzoate monooxygenase (O-demethylating);
4-methoxybenzoate 4-monooxygenase (O-demethylating);
4-methoxybenzoate O-demethylase;
p-anisic O-demethylase;
piperonylate-4-O-demethylase
Class

Acting on paired donors, with incorporation or reduction of molecular oxygen;
Miscellaneous
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
4-methoxybenzoate,hydrogen-donor:oxygen oxidoreductase (O-demethylating)
Reaction(IUBMB)
4-methoxybenzoate + reduced acceptor + O2 = 4-hydroxybenzoate + formaldehyde + acceptor + H2O [RN:R01306]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
4-methoxybenzoate [CPD:C02519];
reduced acceptor [CPD:C00030];
O2 [CPD:C00007]
Product
4-hydroxybenzoate [CPD:C00156];
formaldehyde [CPD:C00067];
acceptor [CPD:C00028];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Comment
The bacterial enzyme consists of a ferredoxin-type protein and an iron-sulfur flavoprotein (FMN). Also acts on 4-ethoxybenzoate, N-methyl-4-aminobenzoate and toluate. The fungal enzyme acts best on veratrate.
