In molecular biology, the copper type II ascorbate-dependent monooxygenases are a class of enzymes that require copper as a cofactor and which use ascorbate as an electron donor. This family contains two related enzymes, dopamine beta-monooxygenase EC 1.14.17.1 and peptidylglycine alpha-amidating monooxygenase EC 1.14.17.3. There are a few regions of sequence similarities between these two enzymes, two of these regions contain clusters of conserved histidine residues which are most probably involved in binding copper.[1]
