Accepted name: 2-hydroxyquinoline 8-monooxygenase

Reaction: quinolin-2-ol + NADH + H+ + O2 = quinolin-2,8-diol + NAD+ + H2O

Other name(s): 2-oxo-1,2-dihydroquinoline 8-monooxygenase

Systematic name: quinolin-2(1H)-one,NADH:oxygen oxidoreductase (8-oxygenating)

Comments: requires iron. Quinolin-2-ol exists largely as the quinolin-2(1H)-one tautomer.
