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 1.14.99.44

Accepted Name
Diapolycopene oxygenase.
Reaction catalysed
4,4'-diapolycopene + 4 AH(2) + 4 O(2) <=> 4,4'-diapolycopenedial + 4 A + 6 H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • Little activity with neurosporene or lycopene.
  • Involved in the biosynthesis of C(30) carotenoids such as staphyloxanthin.
  • The enzyme oxidizes each methyl group to the hydroxymethyl and then a dihydroxymethyl group, followed by the spontaneous loss of water to give an aldehyde group.
