monooxygenases

mon·o·ox·y·ge·na·ses

(mon'ō-ok'si-jĕ-nā'sez),
A class of oxidoreductases that catalyze the incorporation of one of the atoms of a molecule of oxygen (O2) into the sugbstrate whle reducing the other atom to water (H2O).

(mon'ō-ok'si-jĕ-nās-ez)
Oxidoreductases that induce the incorporation of one atom of oxygen from O2 into the substance being oxidized.

Cytochrome P450 monooxygenases belong to protein super family of diverse and widely distributed enzymes, which are mainly involved in metabolism of endogenous and exogenous compounds of structurally diverse nature (Hudgson, 1985; Nelson, 1987).

BD is metabolized in the liver through oxidation by the family of cytochrome P450 monooxygenases, a pathway that forms several epoxides, specifically l,2-epoxy-3-butene, 1,2,3,4-diepoxybutane, and 3,4-epoxy-l,2-butanediol (Filser et al.
