physiological function
A0A173MZJ8
the enzyme stoichiometrically catalyzes oxygen consumption and synthesis of benzoyl cyanide and hydrogen peroxide from mandelonitrile. The enzymatic activity is suppressed at a blood pH of 7, and the enzyme is segregated by membranes of defensive sacs from its substrate mandelonitrile which has a pH of 4.6, the optimum pH for ChuaMOX activity. Strong body muscle contractions are necessary for de novo synthesis of benzoyl cyanide
