ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Aldehyde oxygenase (deformylating).
Alternative Name(s)
Aldehyde decarbonylase.
Reaction catalysed
A long-chain aldehyde + O(2) + 2 NADPH <=> an alkane + formate + H(2)O + 2 NADP(+)
Fe cation.
  • Involved in the biosynthesis of alkanes.
  • The enzyme from the cyanobacterium Nostoc punctiforme PCC 73102 is only active in vitro in the presence of ferredoxin, ferredoxin reductase and NADPH, and produces mostly C(15) to C(17) alkanes.
  • The enzyme from pea (Pisum sativum) produces alkanes of chain length C18 to C32 and is inhibited by metal-chelating agents.
  • The substrate for this enzyme is formed by EC
