Accepted name: 4′-methoxyisoflavone 2′-hydroxylase
Reaction: formononetin + [reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + O2 = 2′-hydroxyformononetin + [oxidized NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + H2O

Other name(s): CYP81E1 (gene name); CYP81E3 (gene name); CYP81E7 (gene name); isoflavone 2′-monooxygenase (ambiguous); isoflavone 2′-hydroxylase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: formononetin,[reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase]:oxygen oxidoreductase (2′-hydroxylating)
Comments: A cytochrome P-450 (heme-thiolate) protein. Acts on isoflavones with a 4′-methoxy group, such as formononetin and biochanin A. Involved in the biosynthesis of the pterocarpin phytoalexins medicarpin and maackiain. EC, isoflavone 2′-hydroxylase, is less specific and acts on other isoflavones as well as 4′-methoxyisoflavones.
