Purification and partial characterization of caffeine oxidase--A novel enzyme from a mixed culture consortium.

Abstract

Cell-free extract prepared from a mixed culture consisting of strains belonging to the genera Klebsiella and Rhodococcus grown in the presence of caffeine contains a novel enzyme, caffeine (1,3, 7-trimethylxanthine) oxidase which catalyzes the oxidation of caffeine at the C-8 position to produce 1,3,7-trimethyluric acid. The enzyme was purified to… (More)
