EC 1.14.13.102     
Accepted name: psoralen synthase
Reaction: (+)-marmesin + NADPH + H+ + O2 = psoralen + NADP+ + acetone + 2 H2O

Glossary: (+)-marmesin = (S)-2-(2-hydroxypropan-2-yl)-2,3-dihydro-7H-furo[3,2-g]chromen-7-one
psoralen = 7H-furo[3,2-g]chromen-7-one
Other name(s): CYP71AJ1
Systematic name: (+)-marmesin,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: This microsomal cytochrome P-450-dependent enzyme is specific for (+)-marmesin, and to a much lesser extent 5-hydroxymarmesin, as substrate. Furanocoumarins protect plants from fungal invasion and herbivore attack. (+)-Columbianetin, the angular furanocoumarin analogue of the linear furanocoumarin (+)-marmesin, is not a substrate for the enzyme but it is a competitive inhibitor.
