EC 1.5.3.12     
Accepted name: dihydrobenzophenanthridine oxidase
Reaction: (1) dihydrosanguinarine + O2 = sanguinarine + H2O2
(2) dihydrochelirubine + O2 = chelirubine + H2O2
(3) dihydromacarpine + O2 = macarpine + H2O2
Systematic name: dihydrobenzophenanthridine:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: A CuII enzyme found in higher plants that produces oxidized forms of the benzophenanthridine alkaloids
