Chalcone isomerase, 3-layer sandwich (IPR016088)

Short name: Chalcone_isomerase_3-sand

Overlapping entries


Chalcone isomerase (EC:; also known as chalcone-flavanone isomerase) is a plant enzyme responsible for the isomerisation of chalcone to naringenin, a key step in the biosynthesis of flavonoids. The Petunia hybrida (Petunia) genome contains two genes coding for very similar enzymes, ChiA and ChiB, but only the first seems to encode a functional chalcone isomerase. This entry represents a 3-layer beta/beta/alpha sandwich subdomain found in chalcone isomerases [PMID: 10966651].
