Note that this reaction equation differs from the official Enzyme Commission reaction equation for this EC number, which can be found here .

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: plant seed peroxygenase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: plant peroxygenase, soybean peroxygenase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -14.92Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
A heme protein with calcium binding motif (caleosin-type). Enzymes of this type include membrane-bound proteins found in seeds of different plants. They catalyse the direct transfer of one oxygen atom from an organic hydroperoxide, which is reduced into its corresponding alcohol to a substrate which will be oxidized.

A clearer way to express this reaction equation may be: R1H + R2OOH = R1OH + R2OH

Reactions catalysed include hydroxylation, epoxidation and sulfoxidation. Preferred substrate and co-substrate are unsaturated fatty acids and fatty acid hydroperoxides, respectively. Plant seed peroxygenase is involved in the synthesis of cutin.
