Hydroxylases

Hydroxylases are enzymes that catalyze the addition of hydroxyl groups to substrates during oxidation reactions. This diverse group of enzymes includes tryptophan hydroxylase (E.C. 1.14.16.4), steroid 11-β hydroxylase (E.C. 1.14.15.4), and LTB4 ω-hydroxylase (E.C. 1.14.13.30).

Hydroxylases are enzymes that catalyze the addition of -OH (hydroxyl) groups to their substrate during oxidation reactions. This diverse group of enzymes includes tryptophan hydroxylase (E.C. 1.14.16.4), which is involved in serotonin synthesis; steroid 11-β hydroxylase (also known as CYP11B1) (E.C. 1.14.15.4), which is involved in glucocorticoid synthesis; and LTB4 ω-hydroxylase (also known as CYP4F3) (E.C. 1.14.13.30), which is involved in arachidonic acid metabolism.
