Accepted Name
Alkylglycerol monooxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Glyceryl etherase.
Glyceryl-ether cleaving enzyme.
Glyceryl-ether monooxygenase.
Reaction catalysed
1-alkyl-sn-glycerol + tetrahydrobiopterin + O(2) <=> 1-O-alkyl-sn-glycerol + dihydrobiopterin + H(2)O
Cofactor(s)
Glutathione.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme cleaves alkylglycerols, but does not cleave alkenylglycerols (plasmalogens).
