Accepted name: (S)-2-hydroxypropylphosphonic acid epoxidase
Reaction: (S)-2-hydroxypropylphosphonate + H2O2 = (1R,2S)-1,2-epoxypropylphosphonate + 2 H2O

Glossary: (1R,2S)-1,2-epoxypropylphosphonate = fosfomycin = [(2R,3S)-3-methyloxiran-2-yl]phosphonate
Other name(s): HPP epoxidase; HppE; 2-hydroxypropylphosphonic acid epoxidase; Fom4; (S)-2-hydroxypropylphosphonate epoxidase
Systematic name: (S)-2-hydroxypropylphosphonate:hydrogen-peroxide epoxidase
Comments: This is the last enzyme in the biosynthetic pathway of fosfomycin, a broad-spectrum antibiotic produced by certain Streptomyces species. Contains non heme iron that forms a iron(IV)-oxo (ferryl) complex with hydrogen peroxide, which functions as a proton abstractor from the substrate [7].
