ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.99.56

Accepted Name
Lytic cellulose monooxygenase (C4-dehydrogenating).
Reaction catalysed
((1->4)-beta-D-glucosyl)(n+m) + reduced acceptor + O(2) <=> 4-dehydro-beta-D-glucosyl-((1->4)-beta-D-glucosyl)(n-1) + ((1->4)-beta-D-glucosyl)(m) + acceptor + H(2)O
Cofactor(s)
Cu(+).
Comment(s)
  • This enzyme, found in fungi and bacteria, cleaves cellulose in an oxidative manner.
  • The cellulose fragments that are formed contain a 4-dehydro-D-glucose residue at the non-reducing end.
  • Some enzymes also oxidize cellulose at the C-1 position of the reducing end forming a D-glucono-1,5-lactone residue (cf. EC 1.14.99.54).
