Reaction: (1) D-glutamate + H2O + O2 = 2-oxoglutarate + NH3 + H2O2
(2) D-aspartate + H2O + O2 = oxaloacetate + NH3 + H2O2
Other name(s): D-glutamic-aspartic oxidase; D-monoaminodicarboxylic acid oxidase
Systematic name: D-glutamate(D-aspartate):oxygen oxidoreductase (deaminating)
Comments: A flavoprotein (FAD). D-Glutamate and D-aspartate are oxidized at the same rate. Other D-monoaminodicarboxylates, and other D- and L-amino acids, are not oxidized. cf. EC 220.127.116.11, D-glutamate oxidase and EC 18.104.22.168, D-aspartate oxidase.
