Accepted name: progesterone monooxygenase
Reaction: progesterone + reduced acceptor + O
= testosterone acetate + acceptor + H 2 O 2
Other name(s): progesterone hydroxylase
Systematic name: progesterone,hydrogen-donor:oxygen oxidoreductase (hydroxylating)
Comments: Has a wide specificity. A single enzyme from ascomycete the
Neonectria radicicola ( EC 188.8.131.52 ketosteroid monooxygenase) catalyses both this reaction and that catalysed by EC 184.108.40.206 androst-4-ene-3,17-dione monooxygenase.
