Enzyme Commission Primary Name: dichloroarcyriaflavin A synthase
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -421.74683 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
The conversion of dichlorochromopyrrolate to dichloroarcyriaflavin A is a complex process that involves two enzyme components. RebP is an NAD-dependent cytochrome P450 oxygenase that performs an aryl-aryl bond formation yielding the six-ring indolocarbazole scaffold [Makino07]. Along with RebC, a flavin-dependent hydroxylase, it also catalyses the oxidative decarboxylation of both carboxyl groups. The presence of RebC ensures that the only product is the rebeccamycin aglycone dichloroarcyriaflavin A [HowardJones06]. The enzymes are similar, but not identical, to StaP and StaC, which are involved in the synthesis of staurosporine [Sanchez05].
