IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
6-linalyl-2-O,3-dimethylflaviolin synthase
Other names:
Fur7 [ambiguous]
6-(3,7-dimethylocta-1,6-dien-3-yl)-5,7-dihydroxy-2-methoxy-3-methylnaphthalene-1,4-dione synthase
Systematic name:
geranyl diphosphate:2-O-methyl-3-methylflaviolin geranyltransferase (6-linalyl-2-O,3-dimethylflaviolin-forming)



The enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of the polyketide-isoprenoid furaquinocin D in the bacterium Streptomyces sp. KO-3988. It catalyses the transfer of a geranyl group to 2-O,3-dimethylflaviolin to yield 6-linalyl-2-O,3-dimethylflaviolin and 7-O-geranyl-2-O,3-dimethylflaviolin (cf. EC, 7-geranyloxy-5-hydroxy-2-methoxy-3-methylnaphthalene-1,4-dione synthase) in a 10:1 ratio.
