Two-Domain Multicopper Oxidase

T. J. Lawton, Amy C Rosenzweig

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Two-domain multicopper oxidases (2dMCOs) couple the four-electron reduction of dioxygen to the oxidation of a number of different substrates, including organic compounds and reduced ferricytochromes. The geometry of 2dMCO active sites is similar to that in other multicopper oxidases, but is formed by a significantly different protein architecture. This fold resembles the overall architecture of NO forming copper nitrite reductase (CuNIR). 2dMCOs are classified based on the location of their type-1 copper centers.
