CATH Domain 1xu3E01
|1.20.1280.10||Methane monooxygenase, gamma chain, domain 1|
|Superfamily||Methane monooxygenase, gamma chain, domain 1|
Methane monooxygenase (soluble).
based on mapping to UniProt P11987
Methane + NAD(P)H + O(2) = methanol + NAD(P)(+) + H(2)O.
-!- The enzyme is soluble, in contrast to the particulate enzyme, EC 184.108.40.206. -!- Broad specificity; many alkanes can be hydroxylated, and alkenes are converted into the corresponding epoxides; CO is oxidized to CO(2), ammonia is oxidized to hydroxylamine, and some aromatic compounds and cyclic alkanes can also be hydroxylated, but more slowly.
