IUBMB Comments

The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Chromobacterium violaceum, participates in the biosynthesis of the violet pigment violacein. The product, protoviolaceinate, can be acted upon by EC 1.14.13.224, violacein synthase, leading to violacein production. However, it is very labile, and in the presence of oxygen can undergo non-enzymic autooxidation to the shunt product proviolacein.

The enzyme appears in viruses and cellular organisms

Synonyms
protoviolaceinate synthase, VioD, VioD oxygenase, more
