FUNCTIONCatalyzes the hydroxylation of L-kynurenine (L-Kyn) to form 3-hydroxy-L-kynurenine (L-3OHKyn). Required for synthesis of quinolinic acid.
CATALYTIC ACTIVITY Reaction=H(+) + L-kynurenine + NADPH + O2 = 3-hydroxy-L-kynurenine + H2O + NADP(+); Xref=Rhea:RHEA:20545, ChEBI:CHEBI:15377, ChEBI:CHEBI:15378, ChEBI:CHEBI:15379, ChEBI:CHEBI:57783, ChEBI:CHEBI:57959, ChEBI:CHEBI:58125, ChEBI:CHEBI:58349; EC=;
PATHWAYCofactor biosynthesis; NAD(+) biosynthesis; quinolinate from L-kynurenine: step 1/3.
SIMILARITYBelongs to the aromatic-ring hydroxylase family. KMO subfamily.
