D-amino-acid oxidase (IPR023209)

Short name: DAO

Family relationships



D-Amino acid oxidase (DAO or DAAO) is a flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD)-containing flavoproteins that catalyse the oxidative deamination of d-amino acids with oxygen to generate the corresponding 2-oxo acids along with hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. It displays broad substrate specificity and acts on several neutral and basic d-amino acids, such as d-Ser and d-Ala [PMID: 22393259].
