Reactions
Oxygen + Fatty acid + Reduced rubredoxin = H2O + Oxidized rubredoxin + omega-Hydroxy fatty acid
Oxygen + Fatty acid + Reduced flavoprotein = H2O + Oxidized flavoprotein + omega-Hydroxy fatty acid
Oxygen + Reduced rubredoxin + Alkane = H2O + Primary alcohol + Oxidized rubredoxin
Oxygen + Reduced rubredoxin + Octane = H2O + Oxidized rubredoxin + 1-Octanol
NADPH + Oxygen + H+ + (5Z,8Z,11Z,14Z)-Icosatetraenoic acid = H2O + NADP+ + 20-HETE
