L-lysine monooxygenase is classified as an internal flavin oxygenase. It contains four enzyme-bound FAD molecules, one per subunit. The relative molecular mass of the native protein was estimated by thin layer gel filtration. [Flashner74]
The relative molecular mass of the subunit was estimated by SDS-PAGE [Flashner74].

In Pseudomonas putida the synthesis of L-lysine monooxygenase is induced by L-lysine. L-lysine monooxygenase catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of L-lysine. This reaction involves a concomitant decarboxylation of L-lysine with incorporation of one atom of molecular oxygen. The enzyme is specific for molecular oxygen as electron acceptor. The enzyme is also specific for the L-isomer of lysine. [Takeda69] [Flashner74a]
L-ornithine is also a substrate, but the reaction is an oxidase-type reaction, rather than an oxygenase reaction. Lysine and ornithine act as both a substrate and an effector for this enzyme. The catalytic activity is a sigmoidal function of the lysine or ornithine concentration, suggesting a regulatory site(s) within the enzyme which when saturated, increases its catalytic capacity.
