ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.11.19

Accepted Name
Anthocyanidin synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Leucoanthocyanidin dioxygenase.
Leucocyanidin oxygenase.
Reaction catalysed
A (2R,3S,4S)-leucoanthocyanidin + 2-oxoglutarate + O(2) <=> an anthocyanidin + succinate + CO(2) + 2 H(2)O
Cofactor(s)
Fe(2+); L-ascorbate.
Comment(s)
  • It is involved in the pathway by which many flowering plants make anthocyanin flower pigments (glycosylated anthocyandins).
  • The enzyme hydroxylates the C-3 carbon, followed by a trans diaxial elimination, forming a C-2,C-3 enol.
  • The product loses a second water molecule to form anthocyanidins.
  • When assayed in vitro, non-enzymic epimerization of the product can lead to formation of dihydroflavanols.
  • Thus when the substrate is leucocyanidin, a mixture of (+)-taxifolin and (+)-epitaxifolin are formed.
  • The enzyme can also oxidize the formed (+)-taxifolin to quercetin (cf. EC 1.14.11.23).
