Family relationships

Description

This entry identifies a family of at least two different sugar 1,4 lactone oxidases, mainly from eukaryotes, both involved in synthesising ascorbic acid or a derivative. These include L-gulonolactone oxidase (EC:1.1.3.8) from rat and D-arabinono-1,4-lactone oxidase (EC:1.1.3.37) from Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Baker's yeast). Members are proposed to have the cofactor FAD covalently bound at a site specified by IPR006093.
