IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
aralkylamine dehydrogenase (azurin)
Other names:
aromatic amine dehydrogenase
dehydrogenase, arylamine
tyramine dehydrogenase
aralkylamine:(acceptor) oxidoreductase (deaminating)
arylamine dehydrogenase
Systematic name:
aralkylamine:azurin oxidoreductase (deaminating)



Phenazine methosulfate can act as acceptor. Acts on aromatic amines and, more slowly, on some long-chain aliphatic amines, but not on methylamine or ethylamine.
