ENZYME entry: EC 1.1.1.n4

Accepted Name
(-)-trans-carveol dehydrogenase.
Alternative Name(s)
(4R,6S)-carveol dehydrogenase.
Carveol dehydrogenase.
CDH.
Reaction catalysed
  • (-)-(4R,6S)-trans-carveol + NAD(+) <=> (-)-(4R)-carvone + NADH
  • (+)-(4S,6S)-cis-carveol + NAD(+) <=> (+)-(4S)-carvone + NADH
Comment(s)
  • Catalyzes the oxidation of carveol to carvone, with a strong stereoselectivity since it efficiently converts only the (6S)- stereoisomers, of which (-)-(4R,6S)-trans-carveol is the better substrate.
  • Displays a broad substrate specificity with a preference for substituted cyclohexanols, and does not catalyze the oxidation of primary or short chain aliphatic secondary alcohols.
  • Is also able, albeit more slowly, to oxidize limonene-1,2-diol into 1-hydroxy-2-oxolimonene.
