|4-methylphenol dehydrogenase (hydroxylating).
|4-cresol dehydrogenase (hydroxylating).|
|p-cresol-(acceptor) oxidoreductase (hydroxylating).|
|4-methylphenol + 4 oxidized azurin + H(2)O <=> 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde + 4 reduced azurin + 4 H(+)|
- This bacterial enzyme contains a flavin (FAD) subunit and a
cytochrome c subunit.
- The flavin subunit abstracts two hydrogen atoms from the substrate,
forming a quinone methide intermediate, then hydrates the latter at
the benzylic carbon with a hydroxyl group derived from water.
- The protons are lost to the bulk solvent, while the electrons are
passed to the heme on the cytochrome subunit, and from there to
azurin, a small copper-binding protein that is co-localized with the
enzyme in the periplasm.
- The first hydroxylation forms 4-hydroxybenzyl alcohol; a second
hydroxylation converts this into 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde.
- Formerly EC 126.96.36.199.
