Accepted name: (–)-pluviatolide synthase
Reaction: (–)-matairesinol + NADPH + H+ + O2 = (–)-pluviatolide + NADP+ + 2 H2O

Glossary: (–)-matairesinol = 3R,4R)-3,4-bis[(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)methyl]oxolan-2-one
(–)-pluviatolide = ((3R,4R)-4-(2H-1,3-benzodioxol-5-ylmethyl)-3-[(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)methyl]oxolan-2-one
Other name(s): CYP719A23 (gene name)
Systematic name: (–)-matairesinol,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase (methylenedioxy-bridge-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the plants Sinopodophyllum hexandrum and Podophyllum peltatum, catalyses the formation of a methylenedioxy-bridge. It is involved in the biosynthesis of podophyllotoxin, a non-alkaloid toxin lignan whose derivatives are important anticancer drugs.
