Direct generic reaction:
a dihydroflavonol + 2-oxoglutarate + oxygen → a flavonol + succinate + CO2 + H2O (18.104.22.168)
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: flavonol synthase
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -139.58595 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
In addition to the desaturation of (2R,3R)-dihydroflavonols to flavonols, the enzyme from the satsuma orange Citrus unshiu also has a non-specific activity that trans-hydroxylates the flavanones (2S)-naringenin and the unnatural (2R)-naringenin at C-3 to kaempferol and (+)-dihydrokaempferol, respectively [Lukacin03]. Requires Fe2+.
