Enzyme Commission Primary Name: flavonol synthase
Taxonomic Range: Viridiplantae
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -117.40474 [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+.
