, an arsenate reductase (azurin)
is an enzyme
the chemical reaction
- arsenite + H2O + 2 azurinox arsenate + 2 azurinred + 2 H+
The 3 substrates of this enzyme are arsenite, H2O, and azurinox, whereas its 3 products are arsenate, azurinred, and H+.
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on phosphorus or arsenic in donor with other, known, acceptors. The systematic name of this enzyme class is arsenite:azurin oxidoreductase. This enzyme is also called arsenite oxidase.
