(E)-phenylacetaldehyde oxime,[reduced NADPH-hemoprotein reductase]:oxygen oxidoreductase
This cytochrome P-450 (heme-thiolate) enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of the cyanogenic glucosides (R)-prunasin and (R)-amygdalin. It catalyses three different activities - isomerization of the (E) isomer to the (Z) isomer, dehydration, and C-hydroxylation.
