EC Details
EC number
Accepted name
NADH oxidase (H2O2-forming)
NADH + H+ + O2 = NAD+ + H2O2
Other name(s)
NOX-1, H2O2-forming NADH oxidase
Systematic name
NADH:oxygen oxidoreductase (H2O2-forming)
A flavoprotein (FAD). The bacterium Streptococcus mutans contains two distinct NADH oxidases, a H2O2-forming enzyme and a H2O-forming enzyme (cf. EC, NADH oxidase (H2O-forming)) [1]. The enzymes from the anaerobic archaea Methanocaldococcus jannaschii [6] and Pyrococcus furiosus [3] also produce low amounts of H2O. Unlike EC (NAD(P)H oxidase) it has no activity towards NADPH.
