Characterization of two fructosyl-amino acid oxidase homologs of Schizosaccharomyces pombe

J Biosci Bioeng. 2004;97(4):278-80. doi: 10.1016/S1389-1723(04)70204-2.


Two putative fructosyl-amino acid oxidase genes, FAP1 and FAP2, found in the Schizosaccharomyces pombe genome were cloned and expressed. Both of the gene products (Fap1 and Fap2) were flavoproteins and have no activity for fructosyl-amino acids. It was suggested that Fap1 and Fap2 are an L-pipecolic acid oxidase and L-saccharopine oxidase, respectively.
