D-Amino acid oxidase: new findings

  title={D-Amino acid oxidase: new findings},
  author={Mirella S. Pilone},
  journal={Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences CMLS},
The most recent research on D-amino acid oxidases and D-amino acid metabolism has revealed new, intriguing properties of flavoenzymes and enlighted novel biotechnological uses of this catalyst. Concerning the in vivo function of the enzyme, new findings on the physiological role of D-amino acid oxidase point to a detoxifying function of the enzyme in metabolizing exogenous D-amino acids in animals. A novel role in modulating the level of D-serine in brain has also been proposed for the enzyme… CONTINUE READING
