Flavoenzymes are colourful oxidoreductases that catalyze a large variety of different types of reactions. Flavoenzymes have been extensively studied for their structural and mechanistic properties and are gaining momentum in industrial biocatalytic applications. Some of these enzymes catalyze the oxidative modification of protein substrates. New insights in oxidative flavoenzymes and in particular in novel family members point towards their potential application in the pharmaceutical, fine-chemical and food industries
