Accepted name: sugiol synthase
Reaction: ferruginol + 2 [reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + 2 O2 = sugiol + 2 [oxidized NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + 3 H2O
Glossary: ferruginol = abieta-8,11,13-trien-12-ol
sugiol = 12-hydroxyabieta-8,11,13-trien-7-one
Other name(s): CYP76AH3
Systematic name: ferruginol,[reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase]:oxygen oxidoreductase (sugiol-forming)
Comments: A cytochrome P-450 (heme-thiolate) protein isolated from the plant Salvia miltiorrhiza (danshen). The enzyme also oxidizes 11-hydroxyferruginol to 11-hydroxysugiol. It also oxidizes at C-12 of ferruginol (EC ferruginol monooxygenase).
