IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: (+)-larreatricin hydroxylase

Reaction: (+)-larreatricin + reduced acceptor + O2 = (+)-3'-hydroxylarreatricin + acceptor + H2O

Glossary: (+)-larreatricin = 4,4'-[(2R,3R,4S,5R)-3,4-dimethyltetrahydrofuran-2,5-diyl]bisphenol

Systematic name: (+)-larreatricin:oxygen 3'-hydroxylase

Comments: Isolated from the plant Larrea tridentata (creosote bush). The enzyme has a strong preference for the 3' position of (+)-larreatricin.
