5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural oxidase

Cat No.
The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Methylovorus sp. strain MP688, is involved in the degradation and detoxification of 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural. The enzyme acts only on alcohol groups and requires the spontaneous hydration of aldehyde groups for their oxidation. The enzyme has a broad substrate range that overlaps with EC, aryl-alcohol oxidase.

Store it at +4 ºC for short term. For long term storage, store it at -20 ºC~-80 ºC.
5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural + 3 O2 + 2 H2O = furan-2,5-dicarboxylate + 3 H2O2 (overall reaction); (1a) 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural + O2 = furan-2,5-dicarbaldehyde + H2O2; (1b) furan-2,5-dicarbaldehyde + H2O = 5-(dihydroxymethyl)furan-2-carbaldehyde (spontaneous); (1c) 5-(dihydroxymethyl)furan-2-carbaldehyde + O2 = 5-formylfuran-2-carboxylate + H2O2; (1d) 5-formylfuran-2-carboxylate + H2O = 5-(dihydroxymethyl)furan-2-carboxylate (spontaneous); (1e) 5-(dihydroxymethyl)furan-2-carboxylate + O2 = furan-2,5-dicarboxylate + H2O2
