IUBMB Comments
The enzyme from Arabidopsis thaliana (AtPAO1) oxidizes norspermine to norspermidine with high efficiency . The mammalian enzyme, encoded by the SMOX gene, is a cytosolic enzyme that catalyses the oxidation of spermine at the exo (three-carbon) side of the tertiary amine. No activity with spermidine. Weak activity with N1-acetylspermine. A flavoprotein (FAD). Differs in specificity from EC (N1-acetylpolyamine oxidase), EC (polyamine oxidase (propane-1,3-diamine-forming)), EC (N8-acetylspermidine oxidase (propane-1,3-diamine-forming) and EC (non-specific polyamine oxidase).
