Glossary: bisanhydrobacterioruberin = 2,2′-bis(3-methylbut-2-enyl)-3,4,3′,4′-tetradehydro-1,2,1′,2′-tetrahydro-ψ,ψ-carotene-1,1′-diol
monoanhydrobacterioruberin = 2-(3-hydroxy-3-methylbutyl)-2′-(3-methylbut-2-enyl)-3,4,3′,4′-tetradehydro-1,2,1′,2′-tetrahydro-ψ,ψ-carotene-1,1′-diol
Other name(s): CruF; C50 carotenoid 2′′,3′′-hydratase
Systematic name: bacterioruberin hydro-lyase (bisanhydrobacterioruberin-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, isolated from the archaeon Haloarcula japonica, is involved in the biosynthesis of the C50 carotenoid bacterioruberin. In this pathway it catalyses the introduction of hydroxyl groups to C3′′ and C3′′′ of bisanhydrobacterioruberin to generate bacterioruberin.
