Cytosolic homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase (HGD) catalyzes the reaction of homogentisate and molecular oxygen to form 4-maleylacetoacetate. The activity of human HGD is inferred from the phenotype of alkaptonuria patients, in whom HGD activity is defective (Fernandez-Canon et al. 1996). HGD is a homohexamer (Titus et al. 2000).
