|Plant 4,4-dimethylsterol C-4-alpha-methyl-monooxygenase.
|24-methylenecycloartanol + 6 ferrocytochrome b5 + 3 O(2) + 6 H(+) <=> 4-alpha-carboxy-4-beta,14-alpha-dimethyl-9-beta,19-cyclo-5-alpha-ergost-24(24(1))-en-3-beta-ol + 6 ferricytochrome b5 + 4 H(2)O|
- This plant enzyme catalyzes a step in the biosynthesis of sterols.
- It acts on the 4-alpha-methyl group of the 4,4-dimethylated
intermediate 24-methylenecycloartanol and catalyzes three successive
oxidations, turning it into a carboxyl group.
- The carboxylate is subsequently removed by EC 126.96.36.1998, which also
catalyzes the epimerization of the remaining 4-beta-methyl into the
- Unlike the fungal/animal enzyme EC 188.8.131.52, this enzyme is not able
to remove the methyl group from C-4-monomethylated substrates.
- That activity is performed in plants by a second enzyme,
