Redox centers of 4-hydroxybenzoyl-CoA reductase, a member of the xanthine oxidase family of molybdenum-containing enzymes.


4-Hydroxybenzoyl-CoA reductase (4-HBCR) is a key enzyme in the anaerobic metabolism of phenolic compounds. It catalyzes the reductive removal of the hydroxyl group from the aromatic ring yielding benzoyl-CoA and water. The subunit architecture, amino acid sequence, and the cofactor/metal content indicate that it belongs to the xanthine oxidase (XO) family… (More)
