Name  Sarcosine oxidase, beta subunit, heterotetrameric Short Name  SoxB
Type  Family Description  These sequences represent the beta subunit of a family of known and putative heterotetrameric sarcosine oxidases. Five operons of such oxidases are found in Rhizobium loti(Mesorhizobium loti) and three in Agrobacterium tumefaciens, a high enough copy number to suggest that not all members share the same function. The model is designated as subfamily rather than equivalog for this reason. Sarcosine oxidase catalyzes the oxidative demethylation of sarcosine to glycine. The reaction converts tetrahydrofolate to 5,10-methylene-tetrahydrofolate []. Bacterial sarcosine oxidases have been isolated from over a dozen different organisms and fall into two major classes (1) monomeric form that contains only covalent flavin and (2) heterotetrameric (alpha, beta, gamma, delta) forms that contain a covalent and noncovalent flavin, this entry represents the heterotetrameric form.
