IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.7.3.5

Names

Accepted name:
3-aci-nitropropanoate oxidase
Other name:
propionate-3-nitronate oxidase
Systematic name:
3-aci-nitropropanoate:oxygen oxidoreductase

Reaction

Cofactor

Comments:

A flavoprotein (FMN). The primary products of the enzymic reaction are probably the nitropropanoate free radical and superoxide. Also acts, more slowly, on 4-aci-nitrobutanoate.
