In chemical reaction
- 3,4-dihydroxyphenethylamine + ascorbate + O2 noradrenaline + dehydroascorbate + H2O
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on paired donors, with O2 as oxidant and incorporation or reduction of oxygen. The oxygen incorporated need not be derived from O2 with reduced ascorbate as one donor, and incorporation of one ato of oxygen into the other donor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 3,4-dihydroxyphenethylamine,ascorbate:oxygen oxidoreductase (beta-hydroxylating). Other names in common use include dopamine beta-hydroxylase, MDBH (membrane-associated dopamine beta-monooxygenase), SDBH (soluble dopamine beta-monooxygenase), dopamine-B-hydroxylase, oxygenase, dopamine beta-mono-, 3,4-dihydroxyphenethylamine beta-oxidase, 4-(2-aminoethyl)pyrocatechol beta-oxidase, dopa beta-hydroxylase, dopamine beta-oxidase, dopamine hydroxylase, phenylamine beta-hydroxylase, and (3,4-dihydroxyphenethylamine)beta-mono-oxygenase. This enzyme participates in tyrosine metabolism. It has 3 cofactors: copper, PQQ, and Fumarate.
As of late 2007, only one 1ZHB.
