With oxygen as acceptor
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
sulochrin:oxygen oxidoreductase (cyclizing, (-)-specific)
Reaction(IUBMB)
2 sulochrin + O2 = 2 (-)-bisdechlorogeodin + 2 H2O [RN:R00061]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
sulochrin [CPD:C00495];
O2 [CPD:C00007]
Product
(-)-bisdechlorogeodin [CPD:C03040];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Comment
Also acts on several diphenols and phenylenediamines, but has low affinity for these substrates. Involved in the biosynthesis of mould metabolites related to the antibiotic griseofulvin.
