Accepted name: all-trans-10′-apo-β-carotenal 13,14-cleaving dioxygenase
Reaction: all-trans-10′-apo-β-carotenal + O2 = 13-apo-β-carotenone + (2E,4E,6E)-4-methylocta-2,4,6-trienedial

Other name(s): CCD8 (gene name); MAX4 (gene name); NCED8 (gene name); all-trans-10′-apo-β-carotenal:O2 oxidoreductase (13,14-cleaving)
Systematic name: all-trans-10′-apo-β-carotenal:oxygen oxidoreductase (13,14-cleaving)
Comments: Requires Fe2+. The enzyme from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana also catalyses EC, carlactone synthase, 10-fold faster.
