IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: 3,6-diketocamphane 1,2-monooxygenase

Reaction: (–)-bornane-2,5-dione + O2 + FMNH2 = (–)-5-oxo-1,2-campholide + FMN + H2O

Glossary: (–)-bornane-2,5-dione = 3,6-diketocamphane

Other name(s): 3,6-diketocamphane lactonizing enzyme; 3,6-DKCMO

Systematic name: (–)-bornane-2,5-dione,FMNH2:oxygen oxidoreductase (1,2-lactonizing)

Comments: A Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenase isolated from camphor-grown strains of Pseudomonas putida and encoded on the cam plasmid. Involved in the degradation of (–)-camphor. Requires a dedicated NADH-FMN reductase [cf. EC, FMN reductase (NADH)] [1-2]. The product spontaneously converts to [(1R)-2,2,3-trimethyl-5-oxocyclopent-3-enyl]acetate.
