Reaction: a secondary alcohol + O2 = a ketone + H2O2
Other name(s): polyvinyl alcohol oxidase; secondary alcohol oxidase
Systematic name: secondary-alcohol:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: Acts on secondary alcohols with five or more carbons, and polyvinyl alcohols with molecular mass over 300 Da. The Pseudomonas enzyme contains one atom of non-heme iron per molecule.
