Purification and characterization of an acyclic monoterpene primary alcohol:NADP+ oxidoreductase from catmint (Nepeta racemosa).

Abstract

A soluble monoterpene primary alcohol:NADP+ oxidoreductase has been purified to apparent homogeneity from leaves of the catmint, Nepeta racemosa. The purified enzyme consisted of two polypeptides, with molecular masses of 42,000 and 40,000 Da, and contained zinc ions. A number of monoterpene alcohols (geraniol, nerol, citronellol, and their hydroxylated… (More)
