ENZYME entry: EC 1.6.3.1

Accepted Name
NAD(P)H oxidase (H(2)O(2)-forming).
Alternative Name(s)
Dual oxidase.
NAD(P)H oxidase.
ThOX.
THOX2.
Thyroid NADPH oxidase.
Thyroid oxidase.
Thyroid oxidase 2.
Reaction catalysed
NAD(P)H + O(2) <=> NAD(P)(+) + H(2)O(2)
Cofactor(s)
Ca(2+); FAD; Heme.
Comment(s)
  • When calcium is present, this transmembrane glycoprotein generates H(2)O(2) by transfering electrons from intracellular NAD(P)H to extracellular molecular oxygen.
  • The electron bridge within the enzyme contains one molecule of FAD and probably two heme groups.
  • This flavoprotein is expressed at the apical membrane of thyrocytes, and provides H(2)O(2) for the thyroid peroxidase-catalyzed biosynthesis of thyroid hormones.
