Alpha-pinene monooxygenase (EC 22.214.171.124) is an enzyme with systematic name (-)-alpha-pinene,NADH:oxygen oxidoreductase. This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction
- (-)-alpha-pinene + NADH + H+ + O2 alpha-pinene oxide + NAD+ + H2O
Alpha-pinene monooxygenase takes part in catabolism of alpha-pinene.
