Accepted name:
sulochrin oxidase [(+)-bisdechlorogeodin-forming]
Other name:
sulochrin oxidase
Systematic name:
sulochrin:oxygen oxidoreductase (cyclizing, (+)-specific)



Also acts on several diphenols and phenylenediamines, but has low affinity for these substrates. Involved in the biosynthesis of mould metabolites related to the antibiotic griseofulvin.
