Flavoprotein The products of these conversions, e.g. vanillin, coniferyl alcohol and chiral aryl alcohols, are of interest for Fungus several industries. VAO is the only known fungal member of the 4-phenol oxidising (4PO) subgroup of the VAO/ Phylogeny PCMH ﬂavoprotein family. While the enzyme has been biochemically characterised in great detail, little is Sequence motif known about its physiological role and distribution in fungi. Dehydrogenase We have identiﬁed and analysed novel, fungal candidate VAOs and found them to be mostly present in Pezizomycotina and Agaricomycotina. The VAOs group into three clades, of which two clades do not have any characterised member. Interestingly, bacterial relatives of
