Accepted name: β-amyrin 16β-monooxygenase
Reaction: β-amyrin + [reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + O2 = maniladiol + [oxidized NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + H2O
Glossary: cochalic acid = 3β,16β-dihydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid
maniladiol = 16β-hydroxy-β-amyrin = olean-12-ene-3β,16β-diol
Other name(s): CYP716A141
Systematic name: β-amyrin,[reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase]:oxygen oxidoreductase (maniladiol-forming)
Comments: A cytochrome P-450 (heme-thiolate) protein isolated from the plant Platycodon grandiflorus (baloon flower). The enzyme is also able to oxidize oleanolic acid to cochalic acid.
