EC 1.17.99.2 is Orphan !
Common name :Ethylbenzene hydroxylase

Systematic name :Ethylbenzene:acceptor oxidoreductase

Other names :Ethylbenzene dehydrogenase
Cofactors : Heme; Iron-sulfur; Molybdopterin.

Comments :Involved in the anaerobic catabolism of ethylbenzene by denitrifying bacteria. Ethylbenzene is the preferred substrate; the enzyme from some strains oxidizes propylbenzene, 1-ethyl-4-fluorobenzene, 3-methylpent-2-ene and ethylidenecyclohexane. Toluene is not oxidized. p-benzoquinone or ferrocenium can act as electron acceptor. Contains molybdopterin, [4Fe-4S] clusters and heme b.
