IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.14.13.211

Names

Accepted name:
rifampicin monooxygenase
Other name:
RIF-O
Systematic name:
rifampicin:NAD(P)H:oxygen oxidoreductase (2'-N-hydroxyrifampicin-forming)

Reaction

Comments:

The enzyme has been found in the Corynebacteria Rhodococcus equi and Nocardia farcinica. It confers increased resistance to the antibiotic rifampicin by initiating its degradation.
