ENZYME entry: EC 1.13.11.66

Accepted Name
Hydroquinone 1,2-dioxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Hydroquinone dioxygenase.
Reaction catalysed
Benzene-1,4-diol + O(2) <=> (2E,4Z)-4-hydroxy-6-oxohexa-2,4-dienoate
Cofactor(s)
Fe cation.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme is an extradiol-type dioxygenase, and is a member of the nonheme-iron(II)-dependent dioxygenase family.
  • It catalyzes the ring cleavage of a wide range of hydroquinone substrates to produce the corresponding 4-hydroxymuconic semialdehydes.
