Phenylacetate-CoA oxygenase/reductase, PaaK subunit (IPR011884)

Short name: PA_CoA_Oase5

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



Phenylacetate-CoA oxygenase is comprised of a five gene complex responsible for the hydroxylation of phenylacetate-CoA (PA-CoA) as the second catabolic step in phenylacetic acid (PA) degradation [PMID: 9600981, PMID: 9748275]. Although the exact function of this enzyme has not been determined, it has been shown to be required for phenylacetic acid degradation and has been proposed to function in a multicomponent oxygenase acting on phenylacetate-CoA [PMID: 9748275].
