ENZYME: 1.14.14.53


ID   1.14.14.53
DE   (R)-limonene 6-monooxygenase.
AN   (+)-limonene 6-monooxygenase.
AN   (+)-limonene-6-hydroxylase.
CA   (+)-(R)-limonene + [reduced NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + O(2) = (+)-
CA   trans-carveol + [oxidized NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + H(2)O.
CF   Heme-thiolate.
CC   -!- The reaction is stereospecific with over 95% yield of (+)-trans-
CC       carveol from (R)-limonene.
CC   -!- (S)-Limonene, the substrate for EC 1.14.14.51 is not a substrate.
CC   -!- Forms part of the carvone biosynthesis pathway in Carum carvi
CC       (caraway) seeds.
CC   -!- Formerly EC 1.14.13.80.
