|Gene:||vioD||Accession Number: G-15145 (MetaCyc)|
Species: Chromobacterium violaceum
The subunit structure of this enzyme has not been reported.
VioD is a flavin-dependent and NADPH-dependent monooxygenase that catalyzes the hydroxylation of protodeoxyviolaceinate to yield protoviolaceinate in pathway violacein biosynthesis ([Shinoda07] and reviewed in [Hoshino11]).
The crystal structure has been determined, but no publication has resulted from the structure to date.
