IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 4.2.1.131

Names

Accepted name:
carotenoid 1,2-hydratase
Other name:
CrtC
Systematic name:
lycopene hydrO-lyase (1-hydroxy-1,2-dihydrolycopene-forming)

Reactions

Comments:

In Rubrivivax gelatinosus [1] and Thiocapsa roseopersicina [2] both products are formed, whereas Rhodobacter capsulatus [1] only gives 1-hydroxy-1,2-dihydrolycopene. Also acts on neurosporene giving 1-hydroxy-1,2-dihydroneurosporene with both organisms but 1,1'-dihydroxy-1,1',2,2'-tetrahydroneurosporene only with Rubrivivax gelatinosus.
