Accepted name: abscisic-aldehyde oxidase
Reaction: abscisic aldehyde + H2O + O2 = abscisate + H2O2

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].
