Flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMOs)

Flavin-containing monooxygenases are known for their broad substrate specificity and their ability to perform oxygenations of e.g. amines and sulfides. Some bacterial FMOs were shown to perform hydroxylation of indoles (MeFMO) while the human FMO5 was recently shown to be able to perform various Baeyer-Villiger oxidations. Below some of the GECCO FMOs are highlighted, while we also can offer other microbial FMOs.
