A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.13.217

Accepted Name
Protodeoxyviolaceinate monooxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Protoviolaceinate synthase.
Reaction catalysed
Protodeoxyviolaceinate + NAD(P)H + O(2) <=> protoviolaceinate + NAD(P)(+) + H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Chromobacterium violaceum, participates in the biosynthesis of the violet pigment violacein.
  • The immediate product, protoviolaceinate, can be acted upon by EC 1.14.13.224, leading to violacein production.
  • However, it is very labile, and in the presence of oxygen can be converted to the shunt product proviolacein.
