BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
dihydroceramide,ferrocytochrome-b5:oxygen oxidoreductase (fatty acyl 2-hydroxylating)
Reaction(IUBMB)
a dihydroceramide + 2 ferrocytochrome b5 + O2 + 2 H+ = a (2'R)-2'-hydroxydihydroceramide + 2 ferricytochrome b5 + H2O [RN:R11003]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
dihydroceramide [CPD:C12126];
ferrocytochrome b5 [CPD:C00999];
O2 [CPD:C00007];
H+ [CPD:C00080]
Product
(2'R)-2'-hydroxydihydroceramide [CPD:C21021];
ferricytochrome b5 [CPD:C00996];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Comment
The enzyme, characterized from plants, catalyses the hydroxylation of carbon 2 of long- or very-long-chain fatty acids attached to sphinganine during de novo ceramide synthesis. The enzyme requires an external cytochrome b5 as the electron donor. The newly introduced 2-hydroxyl group has R-configuration. cf. EC 1.14.18.6, 4-hydroxysphinganine ceramide fatty acyl 2-hydroxylase.
