MetaCyc Enzyme: 1-hydroxy-carotenoid methylase

Gene: crtF Accession Number: G-12169 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: demethylspheroidene and didehydrorhodopin O-methyltransferase

Species: Rubrivivax gelatinosus

Summary:
The subunit structure of this enzyme has not been reported.

Rubrivivax gelatinosus is a photosynthetic non-sulfur purple bacterium that produces carotenoids by both the spheroidene and spheroidenone biosynthesis and spirilloxanthin and 2,2'-diketo-spirilloxanthin biosynthesis pathways. These methylated carotenoids function as accessory pigments in the light-harvesting and reaction-center complexes of this β-proteobacterium. Insertional mutagenesis and carotenoid analysis studies confirmed the O-methyltransferase activity of CrtF in this organism. There was an absence of methoxy-carotenoids in the CrtF mutant [Pinta03].

The recombinant CrtF enzyme from the α-proteobacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus, a non-sulfur purple bacterium, has been expressed in Escherichia coli and characterized [Badenhop03] (see hydroxyneurosporene methyltransferase).
