This review examines the metalloenzymes that catalyze the oxidation of alkanes in the environment. The focus of the review is on what is known about the relative abundances of these metalloenzymes, their metal ion requirements, and their reaction mechanisms. The relative significance of these reactions in the global transformation of alkanes is discussed.
