Accepted name: diamine oxidase
Reaction: histamine + H2O + O2 = (imidazol-4-yl)acetaldehyde + NH3 + H2O2
Other name(s): amine oxidase (ambiguous); amine oxidase (copper-containing) (ambiguous); CAO (ambiguous); Cu-containing amine oxidase (ambiguous); copper amine oxidase (ambiguous); diamine oxidase (ambiguous); diamino oxhydrase (ambiguous); histaminase; histamine deaminase (incorrect); semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (incorrect); SSAO (incorrect)
Systematic name: histamine:oxygen oxidoreductase (deaminating)
Comments: A group of enzymes that oxidize diamines, such as histamine, and also some primary monoamines but have little or no activity towards secondary and tertiary amines. They are copper quinoproteins (2,4,5-trihydroxyphenylalanine quinone) and, like EC (primary-amine oxidase) but unlike EC (monoamine oxidase), they are sensitive to inhibition by carbonyl-group reagents, such as semicarbazide.
