The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Undetermined; a substrate lacks a chemical formula
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: nitroalkane oxidase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: nitroethane oxidase, NAO, nitroethane:oxygen oxidoreductase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Has an absolute requirement for FAD [Fitzpatrick05]. While nitroethane may be the physiological substrate [Kido78a], the enzyme also acts on several other nitroalkanes, including 1-nitropropane, 2-nitropropane, 1-nitrobutane, 1-nitropentane, 1-nitrohexane, nitrocyclohexane and some nitroalkanols [Fitzpatrick05].
