EC 1.14.21.8     
Accepted name: pseudobaptigenin synthase
Reaction: (1) calycosin + NADPH + H+ + O2 = pseudobaptigenin + NADP+ + 2 H2O
(2) pratensein + NADPH + H+ + O2 = 5-hydroxypseudobaptigenin + NADP+ + 2 H2O
Glossary: calycosin = 3′-hydroxyformononetin
pratensein = 3′-hydroxybiochanin A
Systematic name: calycosin,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase (methylenedioxy-bridge-forming)
Comments: A heme-thiolate enzyme (P-450) catalysing an oxidative reaction that does not incorporate oxygen into the product. Catalyses a step in the biosynthesis of (–)-maackiain, the main pterocarpan phytoalexin in chickpea (Cicer arietinum).
