Accepted name: xanthoxin dehydrogenase
Reaction: xanthoxin + NAD+ = abscisic aldehyde + NADH + H+
For diagram of abscisic-acid biosynthesis, click here and for carotenoid-epoxide rearrangements, click here
Other name(s): xanthoxin oxidase; ABA2
Systematic name: xanthoxin:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Requires a molybdenum cofactor for activity. NADP+ cannot replace NAD+ and short-chain alcohols such as ethanol, isopropanol, butanol and cyclohexanol cannot replace xanthoxin as substrate [3]. Involved in the abscisic-acid biosynthesis pathway in plants, along with EC (abscisic-aldehyde oxidase), EC (9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenase) and EC [(+)-abscisic acid 8′-hydroxylase]. Abscisic acid is a sesquiterpenoid plant hormone that is involved in the control of a wide range of essential physiological processes, including seed development, germination and responses to stress [3].
