|L-phenylalanine + 2 [reduced NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + 2 O(2) <=> (E)-phenylacetaldoxime + 2 [oxidized NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + CO(2) + 3 H(2)O|
- This enzyme, found in plants, catalyzes two successive
N-hydroxylations of L-phenylalanine, a committed step in the
biosynthesis of benzylglucosinolate and the cyanogenic glucosides
(R)-prunasin and (R)-amygdalin.
- The product of the two hydroxylations, N,N-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine,
is labile and undergoes dehydration followed by decarboxylation,
producing an oxime.
- It is still not known whether the decarboxylation is spontaneous or
catalyzed by the enzyme.
- Formerly EC 22.214.171.124.
