ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
exo-cleaving rubber dioxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
heme-dependent rubber oxygenase.
Reaction catalysed
[cis-1,4-isoprene](n) + O2 <=> (4Z,8Z)-4,8-dimethyl-12-oxotrideca-4,8-dienal + cis-1,4-isoprene(n-3)
  • The enzyme, studied mainly from the bacterium Xanthomonas sp. 35Y, catalyzes the cleavage of the double bonds in natural and synthetic rubber (cis-1,4-polyisoprene polymers), generating ends that contain ketone and aldehyde groups.
  • The enzyme from Xanthomonas sp. 35Y contains two c-type cytochromes.
  • It attacks the substrate from its end, producing a single product of 15 carbons.
