Comment
This enzyme participates in the carveol and dihydrocarveol degradation pathway of the Gram-positive bacterium Rhodococcus erythropolis DCL14. The enzyme has not been purified, and requires an unknown cofactor, which is different from NAD+, NADP+ or a flavin.
Pathway
Limonene and pinene degradation
Biosynthesis of secondary metabolites
