Short name: Haem-containing_dehydratase

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family includes aldoxime dehydratase (EC:4.99.1.5). This is a haem-containing enzyme, which catalyses the dehydration of aldoximes to their corresponding nitrile [PMID: 16233624]. The family also includes phenylacetaldoxime dehydratase (EC:4.99.1.7). This haem-containing enzyme catalyses the dehydration of Z-phenylacetaldoxime to phenylacetonitrile [PMID: 10651646]. The enzyme forms an elliptic beta barrel, composed of eight beta-strands, flanked by alpha-helices [PMID: 19740758].
