Dimethylaniline N-oxidase.
Dimethylaniline oxidase.
DMA oxidase.
FAD-containing monooxygenase.

N,N-dimethylaniline monooxygenase.
Ziegler's enzyme.
Reaction catalysed
N,N-dimethylaniline + NADPH + O(2) <=> N,N-dimethylaniline N-oxide + NADP(+) + H(2)O
  • A broad spectrum monooxygenase that accepts substrates as diverse as hydrazines, phosphines, boron-containing compounds, sulfides, selenides, iodide, as well as primary, secondary and tertiary amines.
  • Is distinct from other monooxygenases in that the enzyme forms a relatively stable hydroperoxy flavin intermediate.
  • Generally converts nucleophilic heteroatom-containing chemicals and drugs into harmless, readily excreted metabolites.
  • For example, N-oxygenation is largely responsible for the detoxification of the dopaminergic neurotoxin 1-methyl-4-phenyl- 1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP).
