Other name(s): (+)-MFS. (+)-pulegone 9-hydroxylase. Menthofuran synthase.
Cofactor(s): Heme-thiolate.
Comments: The conversion of substrate into product involves the hydroxylation of the syn-methyl (C9), intramolecular cyclization to the hemiketal and dehydration to the furan. This is the second cytochrome P-450-mediated step of monoterpene metabolism in peppermint, with the other step being catalyzed by Ec
