The Path from β-Carotene to Carlactone, a Strigolactone-Like Plant Hormone
Making Carlactone Germination of parasitic witchweeds depends on strigolactones, which also regulate plant branching and signal in the context of mycorrhizal symbioses. The biosynthetic pathways thatExpand

The structure of L‐amino acid oxidase reveals the substrate trajectory into an enantiomerically conserved active site
The structure of L‐amino acid oxidase (LAAO) from Calloselasma rhodostoma has been determined to 2.0 Å resolution in the presence of two ligands: citrate and o‐aminobenzoate (AB). The protomerExpand

Acyl-CoA dehydrogenases. A mechanistic overview.
Acyl-CoA dehydrogenases constitute a family of flavoproteins that catalyze the alpha,beta-dehydrogenation of fatty acid acyl-CoA conjugates. While they differ widely in their specificity, they shareExpand

Purification and properties of prostaglandin 9-ketoreductase from pig and human kidney. Identity with human carbonyl reductase.
Prostaglandin 9-ketoreductase (PG-9-KR) was purified from pig kidney to homogeneity, as judged by SDS/PAGE using an improved procedure. The enzyme is pro-S stereoselective with regard to hydrogenExpand

The x-ray structure of D-amino acid oxidase at very high resolution identifies the chemical mechanism of flavin-dependent substrate dehydrogenation.
Flavin is one of the most versatile redox cofactors in nature and is used by many enzymes to perform a multitude of chemical reactions. d-Amino acid oxidase (DAAO), a member of the flavoproteinExpand

Structure and characterization of the glycan moiety of L-amino-acid oxidase from the Malayan pit viper Calloselasma rhodostoma.
Ophidian L-amino-acid oxidase (L-amino-acid oxygen:oxidoreductase, deaminating, EC 1.4.3.2) is found in the venom of many poisonous snakes (crotalids, elapids and viperids). This FAD-dependentExpand
