Autocatalysed oxidative modifications to 2-oxoglutarate dependent oxygenases.
Ferrous iron and 2-oxoglutarate-dependent oxygenases and related enzymes catalyse a range of oxidative reactions, possibly the widest of any enzyme family. Their catalytic flexibility is proposed to be related to their nonhaem iron-binding site, which utilizes two or three protein-based ligands. A possible penalty for this flexibility is that they may be more prone to oxidative damage than the P450 oxidases, where the iron is arguably located in a more controlled environment. We review the ev...Expand abstract
