EC 1.1.3.37     
Accepted name: D-arabinono-1,4-lactone oxidase
Reaction: D-arabinono-1,4-lactone + O2 = dehydro-D-arabinono-1,4-lactone + H2O2

Glossary: dehydro-D-arabinono-1,4-lactone = (5R)-3,4-dihydroxy-5-(hydroxymethyl)furan-2(5H)-one
Other name(s): D-arabinono-γ-lactone oxidase; ALO
Systematic name: D-arabinono-1,4-lactone:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoprotein (FAD). L-Galactono-1,4-lactone, L-gulono-1,4-lactone and L-xylono-1,4-lactone can also act as substrates but D-glucono-1,5-lactone, L-arabinono-1,4-lactone, D-galactono-1,4-lactone and D-gulono-1,4-lactone cannot [1]. With L-galactono-1,4-lactone as substrate, the product is L-ascorbate [3]. The product dehydro-D-arabinono-1,4-lactone had previously been referred to erroneously as D-erythroascorbate (CAS no.: 5776-48-7; formula: C6H8O6), although it was referred to as a five-carbon compound [1].
