Abstract

The flavoprotein nitroalkane oxidase catalyzes the oxidation of neutral nitroalkanes to the corresponding aldehydes or ketones, releasing nitrite and transferring electrons to O2 to form H2O2. A combination of solution and structural analyses have provided a detailed understanding of the mechanism of this enzyme.
