AN   Naphthoquinone hydroxylase.
CA   2 juglone + O(2) = 2 3,5-dihydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone.
CC   -!- Even though oxygen is consumed, molecular oxygen is not incorporated
CC       into the product.
CC   -!- Catalysis starts by incorporation of an oxygen atom from a water
CC       molecule into the substrate.
CC   -!- The naphthalene-1,2,4,8-tetrol intermediate is then oxidized by
CC       molecular oxygen, which is reduced to water.
CC   -!- Also acts on 1,4-naphthoquinone, naphthazarin and 2-chloro-1,4-
CC       naphthoquinone.
