EC 1.1.3.45     
Accepted name: aclacinomycin-N oxidase
Reaction: aclacinomycin N + O2 = aclacinomycin A + H2O2
Glossary: aclacinomycin N = 2-ethyl-2,5,7-trihydroxy-6,11-dioxo-4-[[2,3,6-trideoxy-4-O-[2,6-dideoxy-4-O-[(2S,5S,6S)-5-hydroxy-6-methyltetrahydro-2H-pyran-2-yl]-α-L-lyxo-hexopyranosyl]-3-(dimethylamino)-α-L-lyxo-hexopyranosyl]oxy]-1,2,3,4,6,11-hexahydronaphthacene-1-carboxylic acid methyl ester
aclacinomycin A = 2-ethyl-2,5,7-trihydroxy-6,11-dioxo-4-[[2,3,6-trideoxy-4-O-[2,6-dideoxy-4-O-[(2R,6S)-6-methyl-5-oxotetrahydro-2H-pyran-2-yl]-α-L-lyxo-hexopyranosyl]-3-(dimethylamino)-α-L-lyxo-hexopyranosyl]oxy]-1,2,3,4,6,11-hexahydronaphthacene-1-carboxylic acid methyl ester
Other name(s): AknOx (ambiguous); aclacinomycin oxidoreductase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: aclacinomycin-N:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoprotein (FAD). This bifunctional enzyme is a secreted flavin-dependent enzyme that is involved in the modification of the terminal sugar residues in the biosynthesis of aclacinomycins. The enzyme utilizes the same active site to catalyse the oxidation of the rhodinose moiety of aclacinomycin N to the cinerulose A moiety of aclacinomycin A and the oxidation of the latter to the L-aculose moiety of aclacinomycin Y (cf. EC 1.3.3.14, aclacinomycin A oxidase).
