Transferred entry: oryzalexin D synthase. Now EC, oryzalexin D synthase
[EC created 2014, deleted 2018]
Accepted name: oryzalexin D synthase
Reaction: ent-sandaracopimaradien-3β-ol + [reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + O2 = oryzalexin D + [oxidized NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + H2O
Glossary: oryzalexin D = ent-sandaracopimaradiene-3β,7α-diol = (3R,4aR,4bS,7S,9S,10aS)-7-ethenyl-1,1,4a,7-tetramethyl-1,2,3,4,4a,4b,5,6,7,9,10,10a-dodecahydrophenanthren-2,9-diol
ent-sandaracopimaradien-3β-ol = (3R,4aR,4bR,7S,10aS)-7-ethenyl-1,1,4a,7-tetramethyl-1,2,3,4,4a,4b,5,6,7,9,10,10a-dodecahydrophenanthren-2-ol
Other name(s): CYP76M8
Systematic name: ent-sandaracopimaradien-3β-ol,[reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase]:oxygen oxidoreductase (oryzalexin-D-forming)
Comments: A cytochrome P-450 (heme-thiolate) protein. Isolated from Oryza sativa (rice). Oryzalexin D is a phytoalexin.
