Flavin-N5-oxide is a new intermediate in flavoenzymology. Here we describe the identification of DszA (dibenzothiophene catabolism), RutA (uracil catabolism) and HcbA1 (hexachlorobenzene catabolism) as flavin-N5-oxide-utilizing enzymes. Mechanistic analysis of these reactions suggests a model for the identification of other examples of this catalytic motif.
