Reaction: (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate = (7S,8S,9Z,12Z)-7,8-dihydroxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate
Other name(s): 8-hydroperoxide isomerase (ambiguous); (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxy-9,12-octadecadienoate mutase ((7S,8S,9Z,12Z)-5,8-dihydroxy-9,12-octadecadienoate-forming)
Systematic name: (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate hydroxymutase [(7S,8S,9Z,12Z)-7,8-dihydroxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate-forming]
Comments: The enzyme contains heme. The bifunctional enzyme from Gaeumannomyces graminis catalyses the oxidation of linoleic acid to (8R,9Z,12Z)-8-hydroperoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate (cf. EC 188.8.131.52, linoleate 8R-lipoxygenase), which is then isomerized to (7S,8S,9Z,12Z)-5,8-dihydroxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoate .
