IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.13.11.43

Names

Accepted name:
lignostilbene αβ-dioxygenase
Systematic name:
1,2-bis(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)ethylene:oxygen oxidoreductase (αβ-bond-cleaving)

Reaction

Cofactor

Comments:

An iron protein. The enzyme catalyses oxidative cleavage of the interphenyl double bond in the synthetic substrate and lignin-derived stilbenes. It is responsible for the degradation of a diarylpropane-type structure in lignin.
