|Lytic chitin monooxygenase.
|((1->4)-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl)(n+m) + reduced acceptor + O(2) <=> ((1->4)-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl)(m-1)-(1->4)-2-(acetylamino)-2-deoxy-D-glucono-1,5-lactone + ((1->4)-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl)(n) + acceptor + H(2)O|
- The enzyme cleaves chitin in an oxidative manner, releasing fragments
of chitin with an N-acetylamino-D-glucono-1,5-lactone at the reducing
- The initially formed lactone at the reducing end of the shortend
chitin chain quickly hydrolyzes spontaneously to the aldonic acid.
- In vitro ascorbate can serve as reducing agent.
