KEGG   ENZYME: 1.14.99.4Help
Entry
EC 1.14.99.4                Enzyme                                 

Name
progesterone monooxygenase;
progesterone hydroxylase
Class
Oxidoreductases;
Acting on paired donors, with incorporation or reduction of molecular oxygen;
Miscellaneous
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
progesterone,hydrogen-donor:oxygen oxidoreductase (hydroxylating)
Reaction(IUBMB)
progesterone + AH2 + O2 = testosterone acetate + A + H2O [RN:R02212]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
progesterone [CPD:C00410];
AH2 [CPD:C00030];
O2 [CPD:C00007]
Product
testosterone acetate [CPD:C03027];
A [CPD:C00028];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Comment
Has a wide specificity. A single enzyme from ascomycete the Neonectria radicicola (EC 1.14.13.54 ketosteroid monooxygenase) catalyses both this reaction and that catalysed by EC 1.14.99.12 androst-4-ene-3,17-dione monooxygenase.
History
EC 1.14.99.4 created 1972, modified 1999
