Accepted name: N8-acetylspermidine oxidase (propane-1,3-diamine-forming)
Reaction: N8-acetylspermidine + O2 + H2O = propane-1,3-diamine + 4-acetamidobutanal + H2O2
Systematic name: N8-acetylspermidine:oxygen oxidoreductase (propane-1,3-diamine-forming)
Comments: Also active with N1-acetylspermine, weak activity with N1,N12-diacetylspermine. No activity with diaminopropane, putrescine, cadaverine, diaminohexane, norspermidine, spermine and spermidine. Absence of monoamine oxidase (EC activity. Differs in specificity from EC (N1-acetylpolyamine oxidase), EC (polyamine oxidase (propane-1,3-diamine-forming)), EC (spermine oxidase) and EC (non-specific polyamine oxidase).
