ENZYME entry: EC 1.2.3.3

Accepted Name
pyruvate oxidase.
Alternative Name(s)
phosphate-dependent pyruvate oxidase.
pyruvic oxidase.
Reaction catalysed
H(+) + O2 + phosphate + pyruvate <=> acetyl phosphate + CO2 + H2O2
Comment(s)
  • Two reducing equivalents are transferred from the resonant carbanion/enamine forms of 2-hydroxyethyl-thiamine-diphosphate to the adjacent flavin cofactor, yielding 2-acetyl-thiamine diphosphate (AcThDP) and reduced flavin.
  • FADH is reoxidized by O2 to yield H2O2 and FAD and AcThDP is cleaved phosphorolytically to acetyl phosphate and thiamine diphosphate.
