Reaction: N-alkylglycine + H2O + O2 = alkylamine + glyoxalate + H2O2
Other name(s): N-carboxymethylalkylamine:oxygen oxidoreductase (decarboxymethylating)
Systematic name: N-alkylglycine:oxygen oxidoreductase (alkylamine forming)
Comments: Isolated from the mold Cladosporium sp. G-10. Acts on N6-(carboxymethyl)lysine, 6-[(carboxymethy)amino]hexanoic acid, sarcosine and N-ethylglycine. It has negligible action on glycine (cf. EC 126.96.36.199 glycine oxidase).
