Conserved Site

D-amino acid oxidase, conserved site (IPR006181)

Short name: D-amino_acid_oxidase_CS


D-amino acid oxidase (EC: (DAMOX or DAO) is an FAD flavoenzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of neutral and basic D-amino acids into their corresponding keto acids. DAOs have been characterised and sequenced in fungi and vertebrates where they are known to be located in the peroxisomes. D-aspartate oxidase (EC: (DASOX) [PMID: 1601857] is an enzyme, structurally related to DAO, which catalyzes the same reaction but is active only toward dicarboxylic D-amino acids. In DAO, a conserved histidine has been shown [PMID: 1673125] to be important for the enzyme's catalytic activity.
