ENZYME entry: EC 1.10.3.17

Accepted Name
Superoxide oxidase.
Alternative Name(s)
Cytochrome b(561).
Reaction catalysed
2 O(2) + ubiquinol <=> 2 superoxide + ubiquinone + 2 H(+)
Comment(s)
  • This membrane-bound, di-heme containing enzyme, identified in the bacterium Escherichia coli, is responsible for the detoxification of superoxide in the periplasm.
  • In vivo the reaction proceeds in the opposite direction of that shown and produces oxygen.
  • Superoxide production was only observed when the enzyme was incubated in vitro with an excess of ubiquinol.
