ENZYME entry: EC 1.7.3.3

Accepted Name
Factor independent urate hydroxylase.
Alternative Name(s)
Urate oxidase.
Uric acid oxidase.
Uricase.
Uricase II.
Reaction catalysed
Urate + O(2) + H(2)O <=> 5-hydroxyisourate + H(2)O(2)
Comment(s)
  • Was previously thought to be a copper protein, but it is now known that the enzymes from soybean (Glycine max), the mold Aspergillus flavus and Bacillus subtilis contains no copper nor any other transition-metal ion.
  • The 5-hydroxyisourate formed decomposes spontaneously to form allantoin and CO(2), although there is an enzyme-catalyzed pathway in which EC 3.5.2.17 catalyzes the first step.
  • The enzyme is different from EC 1.14.13.113.
