- ascorbate + O2 + H2O oxalate + threonate
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on single donors with O2 as oxidant and incorporation of two atoms of oxygen into the substrate (oxygenases). The oxygen incorporated need not be derived from O2. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ascorbate:oxygen 2,3-oxidoreductase (bond-cleaving). This enzyme is also called AAoxygenase. This enzyme participates in ascorbate and aldarate metabolism. It employs one cofactor, iron.
