Biochem/physiol Actions

Lysine Oxidase from Trichoderma viride catalyzes the formation of α-keto- ε-aminocaproate by the oxidative deamination of L-lysine. It displays anti-tumor functionality in cancer leukaemic cells. It is a tumor suppressor for squamous cell, fibroblast, ovarian and gastric tumors. Lysine oxidase also plays key role in connective tissue structural integrity and embryo development.

Unit Definition

One unit will catalyze the formation of 1 μmole of 6-amino-2-oxohexanoic acid from L-lysine per min at 37°C at pH 8.0.

Physical form

Contains phosphate buffer salts and stabilizer
