Accepted name: aldehyde oxidase
Reaction: an aldehyde + H2O + O2 = a carboxylate + H2O2
Other name(s): quinoline oxidase; retinal oxidase
Systematic name: aldehyde:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: Contains molybdenum, [2Fe-2S] centres and FAD. The enzyme from liver exhibits a broad substrate specificity, and is involved in the metabolism of xenobiotics, including the oxidation of N-heterocycles and aldehydes and the reduction of N-oxides, nitrosamines, hydroxamic acids, azo dyes, nitropolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and sulfoxides [4,6]. The enzyme is also responsible for the oxidation of retinal, an activity that was initially attributed to a distinct enzyme (EC, retinal oxidase) [5,7].
