ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.21.7

Accepted Name
Biflaviolin synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
CYP158A2.
Reaction catalysed
  • 2 flaviolin + NADPH + O(2) <=> 3,3'-biflaviolin + NADP(+) + 2 H(2)O
  • 2 flaviolin + NADPH + O(2) <=> 3,8'-biflaviolin + NADP(+) + 2 H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • This cytochrome-P450 enzyme, from the soil-dwelling bacterium Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2), catalyzes a phenol oxidation C-C coupling reaction, which results in the polymerization of flaviolin to form biflaviolin or triflaviolin without the incorporation of oxygen into the product.
  • The products are highly conjugated pigments that protect the bacterium from the deleterious effects of UV irradiation.
