Nonenzymatic acetolactate oxidation to diacetyl by flavin, nicotinamide and quinone coenzymes.

Abstract

Acetolactate nonenzymatically reduced flavins, quinones and nicotinamide coenzymes in a time-dependent manner at physiological pH and moderate temperature. In the presence of excess acetolactate, the reduction of FAD and NAD+ followed pseudo-first-order kinetics. The rate of reduction was proportional to the concentration of acetolactate, and the rate… (More)
