Biochemical Characterization of 2-Nitropropane Dioxygenase from Hansenula MRAKII

Abstract

2-Nitropropane dioxygenase from Hansenula mrakii is a flavin-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of anionic nitroalkanes into the corresponding carbonyl compounds and nitrite, with oxygen as the electron acceptor. Although nitroalkanes are anticipated to be toxic and carcinogenic, they are used widely in chemical industry for a quick and effective… (More)
