ENZYME entry: EC 1.13.11.85

Accepted Name
Exo-cleaving rubber dioxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Heme-dependent rubber oxygenase.
Reaction catalysed
Cis-1,4-polyisoprene + n O(2) <=> n (4Z,8Z)-4,8-dimethyl-12-oxotrideca-4,8-dienal
Comment(s)
  • 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.
