EC 1.14.15.37     
Accepted name: luteothin monooxygenase
Reaction: luteothin + 2 O2 + 4 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 4 H+ = aureothin + 3 H2O + 4 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster (overall reaction)
(1a) luteothin + O2 + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H+ = (7R)-7-hydroxyluteothin + H2O + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster
(1b) (7R)-7-hydroxyluteothin + O2 + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H+ = aureothin + 2 H2O + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster
Glossary: luteothin = 2-[(3E,5E)-3,5-dimethyl-6-(4-nitrophenyl)hexa-3,5-dien-1-yl]-6-methoxy-3,5-dimethyl-4H-pyran-4-one
aureothin = 2-methoxy-3,5-dimethyl-6-[(2R,4Z)-4-[(2E)-2-methyl-3-(4-nitrophenyl)prop-2-en-1-ylidene]oxolan-2-yl]-4H-pyran-4-one
spectinabilin = neoaureothin = 2-methoxy-3,5-dimethyl-6-[(2R,4Z)-4-[(2E,4E,6E)-2,4,6-trimethyl-7-(4-nitrophenyl)hepta-2,4,6-trien-1-ylidene]oxolan-2-yl]-4H-pyran-4-one
Other name(s): aurH (gene name)
Systematic name: luteothin,ferredoxin:oxygen oxidoreductase (aureothin-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Streptomyces thioluteus, is a bifunctional cytochrome P-450 (heme-thiolate) protein that catalyses both the hydroxylation of its substrate and formation of a furan ring, the final step in the biosynthesis of the antibiotic aureothin. In the bacteria Streptomyces orinoci and Streptomyces spectabilis an orthologous enzyme catalyses a similar reaction that forms spectinabilin.

EC 2.3.1.290     
Accepted name: spectinabilin polyketide synthase system
Reaction: 4-nitrobenzoyl-CoA + malonyl-CoA + 6 (S)-methylmalonyl-CoA + 6 NADPH + 4 H+ = demethyldeoxyspectinabilin + 7 CO2 + 8 CoA + 6 NADP+ + 5 H2O
Glossary: demethyldeoxyspectinabilin = 2-hydroxy-3,5-dimethyl-6-[(3E,5E,7E,9E)-3,5,7,9-tetramethyl-10-(4-nitrophenyl)deca-3,5,7,9-tetraen-1-yl]pyran-4-one

Other name(s): norAA’BC (gene names); spectinabilin polyketide synthase complex
Systematic name: malonyl-CoA/(S)-methylmalonyl-CoA:4-nitrobenzoyl-CoA (methyl)malonyltransferase (demethyldeoxyspectinabilin-forming)
Comments: This polyketide synthase, characterized from the bacteria Streptomyces orinoci and Streptomyces spectabilis, generates the backbone of the antibiotic spectinabilin. It is composed of 6 modules that total 28 domains and is encoded by four genes. The enzyme accepts the unusual starter unit 4-nitrobenzoyl-CoA and extends it by 6 molecules of (S)-methylmalonyl-CoA and a single molecule of malonyl-CoA. The first module (encoded by norA) is used twice in an iterative fashion, so that the seven Claisen condensation reactions are catalysed by only six modules. The iteration becomes possible by the transfer of the [acp]-bound polyketide intermediate back to the ketosynthase (KS) domain on the opposite polyketide synthase strand (polyketides are homodimeric).
