Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Dicamba monooxygenase
EN
DMO (dicamba monooxygenase) catalyzes the O-demethylation of 2-methoxy-3,6-dichlorobenzoic acid (dicamba) to yield 3,6-dichlorosalicylic acid (DCSA) and formaldehyde via an exocyclic monooxygenation. Thus, the enzyme confers tolerance to dicamba herbicides in planta.
