Accepted name: flavanoid 3′,5′-hydroxylase
Reaction: a flavanone + 2 NADPH + 2 H+ + 2 O2 = a 3′,5′-dihydroxyflavanone + 2 NADP+ + 2 H2O (overall reaction)
(1a) a flavanone + NADPH + H+ + O2 = a 3′-hydroxyflavanone + NADP+ + H2O
(1b) a 3′-hydroxyflavanone + NADPH + H+ + O2 = a 3′,5′-dihydroxyflavanone + NADP+ + H2O

Other name(s): flavonoid 3′,5′-hydroxylase
Systematic name: flavanone,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: A heme-thiolate protein (P-450). The 3′,5′-dihydroxyflavanone is formed via the 3′-hydroxyflavanone. In Petunia hybrida the enzyme acts on naringenin, eriodictyol, dihydroquercetin (taxifolin) and dihydrokaempferol (aromadendrin). The enzyme catalyses the hydroxylation of 5,7,4′-trihydroxyflavanone (naringenin) at either the 3′ position to form eriodictyol or at both the 3′ and 5′ positions to form 5,7,3′,4′,5′-pentahydroxyflavanone (dihydrotricetin). The enzyme also catalyses the hydroxylation of 3,5,7,3′,4′-pentahydroxyflavanone (taxifolin) at the 5′ position, forming ampelopsin. NADH is not a good substitute for NADPH.
