ENZYME entry: EC 1.1.3.49

Accepted Name
(R)-mandelonitrile oxidase.
Reaction catalysed
(R)-mandelonitrile + O(2) <=> benzoyl cyanide + H(2)O(2)
Cofactor(s)
FAD.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the millipede Chamberlinius hualienensis, is segregated from its substrate, which is contained in special sacs.
  • The sacs are ruptured during defensive behavior, allowing the enzyme and substrate to mix in special reaction chambers leading to production of the defensive chemical benzoyl cyanide.
