aldehyde oxidase


aldehyde oxidase
al·de·hyde ox·i·dase (alґdə-hīd okґsĭ-dās) [EC 1.2.3.1] an enzyme of the oxidoreductase class that catalyzes the oxidation of aldehydes to the corresponding acids, generating a superoxide anion. It is a molybdoflavoprotein found in liver tissue, catalyzing the oxidation of a wide variety of heterocyclic compounds and xenobiotics. Activity of this enzyme is believed to be deficient in molybdenum cofactor deficiency.
