IUBMB Comments

The enzymes from the fungi Candida methanosorbosa and several Basidiomycetes species contain an FAD cofactor [1,3]. The enzyme from the phytopathogenic fungi Colletotrichum graminicola and Colletotrichum gloeosporioides utilize a mononuclear copper-radical mechanism . The enzyme acts on primary alcohols and unsaturated alcohols, and has much lower activity with branched-chain and secondary alcohols.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Eukaryota, Bacteria

Synonyms
alcohol oxidase, alcohol oxidase 1, methanol oxidase, alcohol oxidase i, ethanol oxidase, peroxisomal alcohol oxidase, mod1p, mod2p, alcohol oxidase a, alcox, more
