A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC 1.13.12.16

Accepted Name
Nitronate monooxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-nitropropane dioxygenase.
2-NPD.
Nitroalkane oxidase.
NMO.
Reaction catalysed
Ethylnitronate + O(2) <=> acetaldehyde + nitrite + other products
Cofactor(s)
FMN.
Comment(s)
  • Previously classified as EC 1.13.11.32, but it is now recognized that this was the result of the slow ionization of nitroalkanes to their nitronate (anionic) forms.
  • The enzymes from the fungus Neurospora crassa and the yeast Williopsis saturnus var. mrakii (formerly classified as Hansenula mrakii) contain non-covalently bound FMN as the cofactor.
  • Neither hydrogen peroxide nor superoxide were detected during enzyme turnover.
  • Active toward linear alkyl nitronates of lengths between 2 and 6 carbon atoms and, with lower activity, toward propyl-2-nitronate.
  • The enzyme from N.crassa can also utilize neutral nitroalkanes, but with lower activity.
  • Formerly EC 1.13.11.32.
