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 1.14.13.224

Accepted Name
Violacein synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Proviolaceinate monooxygenase.
Reaction catalysed
  • Protoviolaceinate + NAD(P)H + O(2) <=> violaceinate + NAD(P)(+) + H(2)O
  • Protodeoxyviolaceinate + NAD(P)H + O(2) <=> deoxyviolaceinate + 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 products, violaceinate and deoxyviolaceinate, undergo non-enzymic autooxidation into violacein and deoxyviolacein, respectively.
