EC 1. Oxidoreductases

EC 1.5 Acting on the CH-NH group of donors

This subclass contains enzymes that dehydrogenate secondary amines, introducing a C=N double bond as the primary reaction. In some cases, this is later hydrolysed. Sub-subclasses are based on the acceptor: NAD+ or NADP+ (EC 1.5.1), oxygen (EC 1.5.3), a disulfide (EC 1.5.4), a quinone or similar compound (EC 1.5.5), an iron-sulfur protein (EC 1.5.7), a flavin (EC 1.5.8), or some other acceptor (EC 1.5.99).
