Glossary: dichloro-arcyriaflavin A = rebeccamycin aglycone
Systematic name: dichlorochromopyrrolate,NADH:oxygen 2,5-oxidoreductase (dichloroarcyriaflavin A-forming)
Comments: The conversion of dichlorochromopyrrolate to dichloroarcyriaflavin A is a complex process that involves two enzyme components. RebP is an NAD-dependent cytochrome P-450 oxygenase that performs an aryl-aryl bond formation yielding the six-ring indolocarbazole scaffold [1]. Along with RebC, a flavin-dependent hydroxylase, it also catalyses the oxidative decarboxylation of both carboxyl groups. The presence of RebC ensures that the only product is the rebeccamycin aglycone dichloroarcyriaflavin A [2]. The enzymes are similar, but not identical, to StaP and StaC, which are involved in the synthesis of staurosporine [3].
