Accepted name: aldehyde oxidase
Reaction: an aldehyde + H2O + O2 = a carboxylate + H2O2
Other name(s): quinoline oxidase; retinal oxidase
Systematic name: aldehyde:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: Contains molybdenum, [2Fe-2S] centres and FAD. The enzyme from liver exhibits a broad substrate specificity, and is involved in the metabolism of xenobiotics, including the oxidation of N-heterocycles and aldehydes and the reduction of N-oxides, nitrosamines, hydroxamic acids, azo dyes, nitropolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and sulfoxides [4,6]. The enzyme is also responsible for the oxidation of retinal, an activity that was initially attributed to a distinct enzyme (EC, retinal oxidase) [5,7].

Accepted name: abscisic-aldehyde oxidase
Reaction: abscisic aldehyde + H2O + O2 = abscisate + H2O2
For diagram of abscisic-acid biosynthesis, click here
Other name(s): abscisic aldehyde oxidase; AAO3; AOd; AOδ
Systematic name: abscisic-aldehyde:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: Acts on both (+)- and (-)-abscisic aldehyde. Involved in the abscisic-acid biosynthesis pathway in plants, along with EC, (xanthoxin dehydrogenase), EC (9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenase) and EC [(+)-abscisic acid 8′-hydroxylase]. While abscisic aldehyde is the best substrate, the enzyme also acts with indole-3-aldehyde, 1-naphthaldehyde and benzaldehyde as substrates, but more slowly [3].
