The hydroxylation of amino groups is performed by different types of enzymes. Some of these types are metal dependent whereas others need a flavin cofactor. These flavoproteins (NMOs, for N-hydroxylating monooxygenases) can be assigned to subclass B of the external flavoproteins, an enzyme class consisting of enzymes with a broad range of monooxygenating activity. NMOs are mostly found in the biosynthesis of siderophores of different bacteria. Recently a NMO has been identified in the biosynthesis of a kutzneride. NMOs have a narrow substrate range, making them less applicable in industry. NMOs in siderophore biosynthesis can however be targeted to slow down bacterial growth.
