IUBMB Comments

The enzymes from Rubrivivax gelatinosus and Rhodobacter sphaeroides prefer the acyclic carotenoids (e.g. 1-hydroxy-1,2-dihydroneurosporene, 1-hydroxy-1,2-dihydrolycopene) as substrates. The conversion rate for the 3,4-desaturation of the monocyclic 1′-hydroxy-1′,2′-dihydro-γ-carotene is lower [2,3]. The enzyme from the marine bacterium strain P99-3 shows high activity with the monocyclic carotenoid 1′-hydroxy-1′,2′-dihydro-γ-carotene . The enzyme from Rhodobacter sphaeroides utilizes molecular oxygen as the electron acceptor in vitro . However, oxygen is unlikely to be the natural electron acceptor under anaerobic conditions.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Bacteria, Eukaryota, Archaea

Synonyms
hydroxyneurosporene desaturase, p99-3 crtd, more
