ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.20.8

Accepted Name
(-)-deoxypodophyllotoxin synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(-)-yatein + 2-oxoglutarate + O(2) <=> (-)-deoxypodophyllotoxin + succinate + CO(2) + H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the plant Sinopodophyllum hexandrum, is involved in the biosynthetic pathway of podophyllotoxin, a non- alkaloid toxin lignan whose derivatives are important anticancer drugs.
  • It catalyzes the closure of the central six-membered ring in the aryltetralin scaffold.
  • Formerly EC 1.14.11.50.
