The oxygenation pattern of the essential oil monoterpenes of commercial mint (Mentha) species is determined by regiospecific cytochrome P450-catalyzed hydroxylation of the common olefinic precursor (-)-4S-limonene. In spearmint (M. spicata), C6-allylic hydroxylation leads to (-)-trans-carveol and thence (-)-carvone, whereas in peppermint (M. x piperita), C3-allylic hydroxylation leads to (-)-trans-isopiperitenol and ultimately (-)-menthol. cDNAs encoding the C6-hydroxylase and C3-hydroxylase… CONTINUE READING
