tert-butyl alcohol,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase
The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Aquincola tertiaricarbonis, is a Rieske nonheme mononuclear iron oxygenase. It can also act, with lower efficiency, on propan-2-ol, converting it to propane-1,2-diol. Depending on the substrate, the enzyme also catalyses EC 1.14.19.48, tert-amyl alcohol desaturase.
