Reaction: hex-5-enoyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + O2 + 2 H+ = hex-5-ynoyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H2O
Other name(s): jamB (gene name)
Systematic name: hex-5-enoyl-[acyl-carrier protein],reduced ferredoxin:oxygen oxidoreductase (5,6-dehydrogenating)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the marine cyanobacterium Moorea producens, is involved in production of the ion channel blocker jamaicamide A. It is specific for hexanoate or hex-5-enoate loaded onto a dedicated acyl-carrier protein (JamC), which is encoded by a gene in the same operon.
