EC 1.14.13.185

Accepted name: pikromycin synthase

Reaction: (1) narbomycin + NADPH + H+ + O2 = pikromycin + NADP+ + H2O
(2) narbomycin + NADPH + H+ + O2 = neopikromycin + NADP+ + H2O
(3) narbomycin + 2 NADPH + 2 H+ + 2 O2 = novapikromyin + 2 NADP+ + 2 H2O
(4) 10-deoxymethymycin + NADPH + H+ + O2 = methymycin + NADP+ + H2O
(5) 10-deoxymethymycin + NADPH + H+ + O2 = neomethymycin + NADP+ + H2O
(6) 10-deoxymethymycin + 2 NADPH + 2 H+ + 2 O2 = novamethymycin + 2 NADP+ + 2 H2O

Other name(s): PikC; CYP107L1

Systematic name: narbomycin,NADH:oxygen oxidoreductase (pikromycin-forming)

Comments: A heme-thiolate protein (cytochrome P-450). Involved in the biosynthesis of a number of bacterial macrolide antibiotics containing a desosamine glycoside unit. With narbomycin it hydroxylates at either C-12 to give pikromycin or C-14 to give neopikromycin or both positions to give narvopikromycin. With 10-deoxymethymycin it hydroxylates at either C-10 to give methymycin or C-12 to give neomethymycin or both positions to give novamethymycin.
