Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>
-Experimental evidence at protein leveli <p>This indicates the type of evidence that supports the existence of the protein. Note that the 'protein existence' evidence does not give information on the accuracy or correctness of the sequence(s) displayed.<p><a href='/help/protein_existence' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Monooxygenase able to convert a wide range of ketones to the corresponding esters or lactones via a Baeyer-Villiger oxidation reaction. Can act on long-chain aliphatic ketones (2-hexanone to 2-dodecanone) and on aromatic ketones (phenylacetone and benzylacetone). Is also able to catalyze enantioselective sulfoxidation of methyl-p-tolylsulfide. In vivo, likely functions as a BVMO, but the exact nature of the physiological substrate(s) remains to be established.

Is responsible for the activation of several thiocarbamide-containing pro-drugs into cytotoxic species. Thus, catalyzes the oxidation of the antitubercular pro-drug ethionamide (ETH) to the corresponding sulfoxide, which is further oxidized by EthA to 2-ethyl-4-amidopyridine, presumably via the unstable doubly oxidized sulfinic acid intermediate; the final metabolite 2-ethyl-4-amidopyridine has no antitubercular activity, so the cytotoxic species is a metabolite intermediate formed by EthA. Also oxidizes thiacetazone (TAC), thiobenzamide, and isothionicotinamide and therefore is probably responsible, as suggested by the observation of crossover resistance, for the oxidative activation of these other thioamide antitubercular drugs.
