ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Bisdemethoxycurcumin synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Curcuminoid synthase.
Reaction catalysed
2 4-coumaroyl-CoA + malonyl-CoA + H(2)O <=> 3 CoA + bisdemethoxycurcumin + 2 CO(2)
  • A polyketide synthase characterized from the plant Oryza sativa (rice) that catalyzes the formation of the C(6)-C(7)-C(6) diarylheptanoid scaffold of bisdemethoxycurcumin.
  • Unlike the process in the plant Curcuma longa (turmeric), where the conversion is carried out via a diketide intermediate by two different enzymes, the diketide intermediate formed by this enzyme remains within the enzyme's cavity and is not released to the environment.
  • Formerly EC 2.3.1.n9.
