N-acylhexosamine oxidase

Index N-acylhexosamine oxidase

In enzymology, a N-acylhexosamine oxidase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are N-acetyl-D-glucosamine and O2, whereas its two products are N-acetyl-D-glucosaminate and H2O2. [1]

Catalysis is the increase in the rate of a chemical reaction due to the participation of an additional substance called a catalysthttp://goldbook.iupac.org/C00876.html, which is not consumed in the catalyzed reaction and can continue to act repeatedly.
