Sources/Uses

"This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with oxygen as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is D-galactose:oxygen 6-oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include D-galactose oxidase, and beta-galactose oxidase. It employs two cofactors, copper and an active site amino acid derived post-translational modification involving the covalent cross-linking of Cys228 and Tyr272 and which represents the site of the catalytic free radical."
