ENZYME entry: EC 1.13.11.65

Accepted Name
Carotenoid isomerooxygenase.
Reaction catalysed
Zeaxanthin + O(2) <=> (3R)-11-cis-3-hydroxyretinal + (3R)-all-trans-3-hydroxyretinal
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the moth Galleria mellonella and the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, is involved in the synthesis of retinal from dietary caroteoids in insects.
  • The enzyme accepts different all-trans carotenoids, including beta- carotene, alpha-carotene and lutein, and catalyzes the symmetrical cleavage of the carotenoid and the simultaneous isomerization of only one of the products to a cis configuration.
  • When the substrate is hydroxylated only in one side (as in cryptoxanthin), the enzyme preferentially isomerizes the hydroxylated part of the molecule.
  • Formerly EC 1.14.13.164.
