Functioni

Catalyzes an oxidative deamination of predominantly hydrophobic and aromatic L-amino acids (L-Met, followed by L-Leu, L-Phe, L-Trp, L-Tyr, L-Ile), thus producing hydrogen peroxide that may contribute to the diverse toxic effects of this enzyme. Exhibits diverse biological activities, such as apoptosis, cytotoxicity towards several cancer cell lines, induction of platelet aggregation, induction of moderate mouse paw edema, and antibacterial activities against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Unlike other snake venom L-amino acid oxidases, does not induce hemorrhage (with 50 µg of enzyme). May also act in hemolysis, and antiparasitic activities. Effects of snake L-amino oxidases on platelets are controversial, since they either induce aggregation or inhibit agonist-induced aggregation. These different effects are probably due to different experimental conditions.2 Publications

Catalytic activityi

An L-amino acid + H2O + O2 = a 2-oxo acid + NH3 + H2O2.

Similar proteinsi

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
