Glossary: sophoraflavanone B = (–)-(2S)-8-dimethylallylnaringenin = (–)-(2S)-5,7-dihydroxy-2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-8-(3-methylbut-2-enyl)chroman-4-one
leachianone G = (–)-(2S)-2′-hydroxy-8-dimethylallylnaringenin = (–)-(2S)-5,7-dihydroxy-8-(2-hydroxy-3-methylbut-2-enyl)-2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)chroman-4-one
Other name(s): 8-DMAN 2′-hydroxylase
Systematic name: sophoraflavanone-B,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase (2′-hydroxylating)
Comments: A membrane-bound cytochrome P-450 heme-thiolate monooxygenase that is associated with the endoplasmic reticulum [1,2]. This enzyme is specific for sophoraflavanone B as substrate. NADPH cannot be replaced by NADH, FAD or FMN. Along with EC (naringenin 8-dimethylallyltransferase) and EC (leachianone G 2′′-dimethylallyltransferase), this enzyme forms part of the sophoraflavanone-G-biosynthesis pathway.
