Accepted name: propane 2-monooxygenase
Reaction: propane + NADH + H+ + O2 = propan-2-ol + NAD+ + H2O
Glossary: propan-2-ol = isopropanol
Other name(s): prmABCD (gene names)
Systematic name: propane,NADH:oxygen oxidoreductase (2-hydroxylating)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from several bacterial strains, is a multicomponent dinuclear iron monooxygenase that includes a hydroxylase, an NADH-dependent reductase, and a coupling protein. The enzyme has several additional activities, including acetone monooxygenase (acetol-forming) and phenol 4-monooxygenase.
