Accepted name: 8-oxogeranial reductase
Reaction: (R)-8-oxocitronellyl enol + NADP+ = (6E)-8-oxogeranial + NADPH + H+
Glossary: (R)-8-oxocitronellyl enol = (2E,6R,7E)-8-hydroxy-2,6-dimethylocta-2,7-dienal
Other name(s): AmISY
Systematic name: (R)-8-oxocitronellyl enol:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the plant Antirrhinum majus (snapdragon), is involved in biosynthesis of 7-epi-iridoids such as antirrhinoside. The enzyme catalyses the stereospecific reduction of 8-oxogeranial, forming an unstable product that in the absence of additional cylases undergoes spontaneous cyclization to (–)-cis,trans-nepetalactol. cf. EC, (S)-8-oxocitronellyl enol synthase.
