no substrates: isolimonenes, terpinolene, alpha- or beta-phellandrene, alpha- or beta-terpinene, bicyclic monoterpenes: pinene, sabinene, alpha-thujene, p-cymene, cis- or trans-p-menthane, p-menth-1-ene, i.e. 8,9-dihydrolimonene
the kinetically competent recombinant protein produces a mixture of C3-, C6- and C7-hydroxylated limonene derivatives, i.e. (-)-perillyl alcohol, (-)-trans-isopiperitenol, and (-)-trans-carveol, with a distribution of 33%, 14% and 53%, respectively, thus it performs the reaction of EC 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168, overview
construction of a chimeric mutant enzyme by fusion of the N-terminal membrane insertion domain of the limonene-3-hydroxylase into limonene 7-hydroxylase. The kinetically competent recombinant protein produces a mixture of C3-, C6- and C7-hydroxylated limonene derivatives with a distribution of 33%, 14% and 53%, respectively
