Description
Description

Acyl-CoA oxidases are oxidoreductases that oxidize acyl-CoA with the reduction of electron-transfer flavoprotein. They catalyze the first reaction of peroxisomal fatty acid beta-oxidation. This reaction generates hydrogen peroxide, the hallmark metabolite of the organelle. (Adapted from FBrf0219445).
