- Carbon-monoxide dehydrogenase (cytochrome b-561)
enzymology, a carbon-monoxide dehydrogenase (cytochrome b-561) (EC number|126.96.36.199) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:CO + H2O + 2 ferricytochrome b-561 CO2 + 2 H+ + 2 ferrocytochrome b-561
This enzyme belongs to the family of
oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the aldehyde or oxo group of donor with a cytochrome as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is carbon monoxide,water:cytochrome b-561 oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include carbon monoxide oxidase, carbon monoxide oxygenase (cytochrome b-561), carbon monoxide:methylene blue oxidoreductase, CO dehydrogenase, and carbon-monoxide dehydrogenase.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|64972-88-9."
