In enzymology, a cellobiose dehydrogenase (acceptor) (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

cellobiose + acceptor cellobiono-1,5-lactone + reduced acceptor

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are cellobiose and acceptor, whereas its two products are cellobiono-1,5-lactone and reduced acceptor.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, to be specific those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with other acceptors. The systematic name of this enzyme class is cellobiose:acceptor 1-oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include cellobiose dehydrogenase, cellobiose oxidoreductase, Phanerochaete chrysosporium cellobiose oxidoreductase, CBOR, cellobiose oxidase, cellobiose:oxygen 1-oxidoreductase, CDH, and cellobiose:(acceptor) 1-oxidoreductase. It employs sometimes one cofactor, FAD, but in most cases both a heme and a FAD located in separate domains. It makes the enzyme to one of the more complex extracellular oxidoreductases. It is produced by wood degrading organisms.[1]

Structural studies[edit]

To date, structures of the separated flavin and heme containing domains were reported (PDB accession codes 1NAA[2] and 1PL3[3]). In 2015, full-length structures of the enzyme were resolved (accession codes 4QI6 and 4QI7).[4]
