ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.14.53

Accepted Name
(R)-limonene 6-monooxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
(+)-limonene 6-monooxygenase.
(+)-limonene-6-hydroxylase.
Reaction catalysed
(+)-(R)-limonene + [reduced NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + O(2) <=> (+)-trans-carveol + [oxidized NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + H(2)O
Cofactor(s)
Heme-thiolate.
Comment(s)
  • The reaction is stereospecific with over 95% yield of (+)-trans- carveol from (R)-limonene.
  • (S)-Limonene, the substrate for EC 1.14.14.51 is not a substrate.
  • Forms part of the carvone biosynthesis pathway in Carum carvi (caraway) seeds.
  • Formerly EC 1.14.13.80.
