MetaCyc Enzyme: 10'-apo-β-carotenal 13,14-cleaving dioxygenase

Gene: CCD8 Accession Number: AT4G32810 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: At4G32810

Species: Arabidopsis thaliana col

Summary:
The CCD8 gene is one of nine Arabidopsis thaliana genes that encode carotenoid dioxygenases. The gene encodes a 10'-apo-β-carotenal 13,14-cleaving dioxygenase, an enzyme that catalyzes a complex oxigenation/rearrangement of 9-cis-10'-apo-β-carotenal, generating carlactone, an intermediate leading to production of strigolactones [Alder12].

As typical to genes involved in this pathway, mutants in CCD8 display a dramatic increase in lateral branching [Sorefan03].

In an earlier work the protein was co-expressed with CCD7 in carotenoid-accumulating strains of Escherichia coli. It was found that the recombinant protein catalyzed the cleavage of all-trans-10'-apo-β-carotenal (produced by CCD7) to 13-apo-β-carotenone and a C9 dialdehyde [Schwartz04]. However, later work has shown that the in vivo substrate of the enzyme is 9-cis-10'-apo-β-carotenal, and that CCD8 alone is sufficient for conversion of this compound into a strigolactone-like compound [Alder12]. It was also shown that the reaction with 9-cis-10'-apo-β-carotenal is 10-fold faster than that with all-trans-10'-apo-β-carotenal [Alder12].
