Accepted name: tert-amyl alcohol desaturase
Reaction: tert-amyl alcohol + NADPH + H+ + O2 = isoprenyl alcohol + NADP+ + 2 H2O
Glossary: isoprenyl alcohol = 3-methylbut-1-en-3-ol
tert-amyl alcohol = 2-methylbutan-2-ol
Other name(s): mdpJK (gene names)
Systematic name: tert-amyl alcohol,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase (1,2-dehydrogenating)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Aquincola tertiaricarbonis, is a Rieske nonheme mononuclear iron oxygenase. It can also act, with lower efficiency, on butan-2-ol, converting it to but-1-en-3-ol. Depending on the substrate, the enzyme also catalyses EC, tert-butanol monooxygenase.
