Entry M0132 22.214.171.124 alkanal monooxygenase (FMN-linked)
Previous Step Next Step
The bound oxygen on the FMN deprotonates His44. The negatively charged oxygen on the intermediate initiates a single electron transfer from the intermediate to the FMN which then emits a photon
Comment: The FMN intermediate formed in this step is the postulated excited state which decays to the flavin-4a-hydroxyde concomitant with emission of light .
