Accepted name: aliphatic glucosinolate S-oxygenase
Reaction: an ω-(methylsulfanyl)alkyl-glucosinolate + NADPH + H+ + O2 = an ω-(methylsulfinyl)alkyl-glucosinolate + NADP+ + H2O
Glossary: ω-(methylsulfanyl)alkyl-glucosinolate = an ω-(methylsulfanyl)-N-sulfo-alkylhydroximate S-glucoside
Other name(s): ω-(methylthio)alkylglucosinolate S-oxygenase; GS-OX1 (gene name); ω-(methylthio)alkyl-glucosinolate,NADPH:oxygen S-oxidoreductase
Systematic name: ω-(methylsulfanyl)alkyl-glucosinolate,NADPH:oxygen S-oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme is a member of the flavin-dependent monooxygenase (FMO) family (cf. EC The plant Arabidopsis thaliana contains five isoforms. GS-OX1 through GS-OX4 are able to catalyse the S-oxygenation independent of chain length, while GS-OX5 is specific for 8-(methylsulfanyl)octyl glucosinolate.
