Type I Baeyer Villiger Monooxygenases

Type I BVMOs are composed of only one polypeptide of about 500 amino acids. They contain FAD as flavin cofactor and require NADPH and molecular oxygen for activity [9]. These monooxygenase are typically soluble proteins located in the cytosol of bacteria or fungi. Most of the presently known BVMOs are of this type. Type I BVMOs are sequence related to two other flavoprotein monooxygenase classes: hetero-atom flavin-containing monooxygenases and N-hydroxylating flavin-containing monooxygenases [10]. This reflects a shared reactivity as all three flavoprotein classes employ a FAD cofactor to perform oxygenation reactions.
