AlkJ , an alcohol dehydrogenase from Pseudomonas oleovorans, which
converts aliphatic medium-chain-length alcohols into aldehydes.
Cellobiose dehydrogenase (CDH) (EC 220.127.116.11) from Phanerochaete
This family also includes a lyase:
(R)-mandelonitrile lyase (EC 18.104.22.168) (hydroxynitrile lyase) from plants
, an enzyme involved in cyanogenis, the release of hydrogen cyanide from
These enzymes are proteins of size ranging from 556 (CHD) to 664 (MOX) amino
acid residues which share a number of regions of sequence similarities. One of
these regions, located in the N-terminal section, corresponds to the FAD ADP-binding domain. The function of the other conserved domains is not yet known;
we have selected two of these domains as signature patterns. The first one is
located in the N-terminal section of these enzymes, about 50 residues after
the ADP-binding domain, while the second one is located in the central
