ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Primary-amine oxidase.
Alternative Name(s)
Amine oxidase.
Amine oxidase (copper-containing).
Benzylamine oxidase.
Copper amine oxidase.
Reaction catalysed
RCH(2)NH(2) + H(2)O + O(2) <=> RCHO + NH(3) + H(2)O(2)
  • A group of enzymes that oxidize primary monoamines but have little or no activity toward diamines, such as histamine, or toward secondary and tertiary amines.
  • They are copper quinoproteins (2,4,5-trihydroxyphenylalanine quinone) and, unlike EC, are sensitive to inhibition by carbonyl-group reagents, such as semicarbazide.
  • In some mammalian tissues the enzyme also functions as a vascular- adhesion protein (VAP-1).
  • Formerly EC
