EC 1.13.11.60     
Accepted name: linoleate 8R-lipoxygenase
Reaction: linoleate + O2 = (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate
Glossary: linoleate = (9Z,12Z)-octadeca-9,12-dienoate
Other name(s): linoleic acid 8R-dioxygenase; 5,8-LDS (bifunctional enzyme); 7,8-LDS (bifunctional enzyme); 5,8-linoleate diol synthase (bifunctional enzyme); 7,8-linoleate diol synthase (bifunctional enzyme); PpoA
Systematic name: linoleate:oxygen (8R)-oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme contains heme [1,4]. The bifunctional enzyme from Aspergillus nidulans uses different heme domains to catalyse two separate reactions. Linoleic acid is oxidized within the N-terminal heme peroxidase domain to (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate, which is subsequently isomerized by the C-terminal P-450 heme thiolate domain to (5S,8R,9Z,12Z)-5,8-dihydroxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate (cf. EC 5.4.4.5, 9,12-octadecadienoate 8-hydroperoxide 8R-isomerase) [1]. The bifunctional enzyme from Gaeumannomyces graminis also catalyses the oxidation of linoleic acid to (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate, but its second domain isomerizes it to (7S,8S,9Z,12Z)-5,8-dihydroxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate (cf. EC 5.4.4.6, 9,12-octadecadienoate 8-hydroperoxide 8S-isomerase) [4].
