Other Name(s): dimethylallyl-3,6a,9-trihydroxypterocarpan cyclase
Systematic name: 2-(or 4-)dimethylallyl-(6aS,11aS)-3,6a,9-trihydroxypterocarpan,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase (cyclizing)
Comments: A heme-thiolate protein (P-450). Glyceollins II and III are formed from 2-dimethylallyl-(6aS,11aS)-3,6a,9-trihydroxypterocarpan whereas glyceollin I is formed from the 4-isomer.
