Accepted name: phenylacetate 2-hydroxylase
Reaction: phenylacetate + [reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + O2 = (2-hydroxyphenyl)acetate + [oxidized NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + H2O
Other name(s): CYP504; phaA (gene name)
Systematic name: phenylacetate,[reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase]:oxygen oxidoreductase (2-hydroxylating)
Comments: This cytochrome P-450 (heme-thiolate) enzyme, found in Aspergillus nidulans, is involved in the degradation of phenylacetate.
