Reaction: thiophene-2-carbonyl-CoA + reduced acceptor + O2 = 5-hydroxythiophene-2-carbonyl-CoA + acceptor + H2O
Other name(s): thiophene-2-carboxyl-CoA dehydrogenase; thiophene-2-carboxyl-CoA hydroxylase; thiophene-2-carboxyl-CoA monooxygenase
Systematic name: thiophene-2-carbonyl-CoA, hydrogen-donor:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: A molybdenum enzyme. Highly specific for thiophene-2-carbonyl-CoA. Tetrazolium salts can act as electron acceptors.
