Synonyms: Alcohol:oxygen oxidoreductase
CAS Number: 9073-63-6
MDL No.: MFCD00130452
Enzyme Commission (EC) Number: 188.8.131.52 ( BRENDA | IUBMB )
UNSPSC Code: 12352204
Application: Alcohol Oxidase may be used to study protein translocation into peroxisomes. Product A2404 is from Pichia pastoris. It has been used for the bacterial expression and immunological verification of Hv-p68 cDNA clones .
Biochem/physiol Actions: Alcohol oxidase catalyzes the oxidation of short-chain, primary, aliphatic alcohols to their respective aldehydes. It has the highest affinity for methanol. Alcohol oxidase is involved in the metabolism of methanol, which is important for yeasts that utilize methanol as their sole energy source. Alcohol oxidase is primarily found in the peroxisome but may be present in the cytoplasm as well.
Physical form: Solution in 30% sucrose with 0.1 M phosphate buffer at pH 8.0
Unit Definition: One unit will oxidize 1.0Â mumole of methanol to formaldehyde per min at pHÂ 7.5 at 25Â C.
RIDADR: NONH for all modes of transport
