Glycine oxidase (EC 1.4.3.19) is an enzyme with systematic name glycine:oxygen oxidoreductase (deaminating).[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

glycine + H2O + O2 glyoxylate + NH3 + H2O2 (overall reaction)
(1a) glycine + O2 2-iminoacetate + H2O2
(1b) 2-iminoacetate + H2O glyoxylate + NH3

This flavoenzyme containing non-covalently bound FAD.
