Basic Information

Enzyme Number

Official Name

polyamine oxidase

Name from literature

amine oxidase

Pathway from literature

beta-alanine and pantothenic acid biosynthesis


Yeast (4932)


A flavoprotein requiring Fe2+. Also acts on N1-acetylspermidine and N1,N12-diacetylspermine.

Rate-limiting Description

"Using a functional screen in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a putative amine oxidase, encoded by FMS1, was found to be rate-limiting for beta-alanine and pantothenic acid biosynthesis." (11154694)
