Enzymes and Genes:

Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655: hydroperoxidase IInferred from experiment: katG

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: catalase-peroxidase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: katG (gene name)

Taxonomic Range: Archaea, Fungi, Bacteria

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Differs from EC, peroxidase in having a relatively high catalase ( EC activity with hydrogen peroxide as donor, releasing oxygen; both activities use the same heme active site. In Mycobacterium tuberculosis it is responsible for activation of the commonly used antitubercular drug, isoniazid.
