ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
4-nitrocatechol 4-monooxygenase.
Reaction catalysed
  • 4-nitrocatechol + NADPH + O2 <=> 2-hydroxy-1,4-benzoquinone + H2O + NADP(+) + nitrite
  • 4-nitrocatechol + NADH + O2 <=> 2-hydroxy-1,4-benzoquinone + H2O + NAD(+) + nitrite
  • The enzyme catalyzes the oxidation of 4-nitrocatechol with the concomitant removal of the nitro group as nitrite.
  • Forms a two-component system with a flavoprotein reductase.
  • The enzymes from the bacteria Lysinibacillus sphaericus JS905 and Rhodococcus sp. strain PN1 were shown to also catalyze EC, while the enzyme from Pseudomonas sp. WBC-3 was shown to also catalyze EC
