A FAD-dependent oxygenase. Isolated from the bacteria Streptomyces exfoliatus and Streptomyces arenae. The ketone undergoes a biological Baeyer-Villiger reaction. Part of the pathway of pentalenolactone biosynthesis.
Genome mining in Streptomyces. Elucidation of the role of Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenases and non-heme iron-dependent dehydrogenase/oxygenases in the final steps of the biosynthesis of pentalenolactone and neopentalenolactone.
