Accepted name: 8′-apo-β-carotenoid 14′,13′-cleaving dioxygenase
Reaction: 8′-apo-β-carotenol + O2 = 14′-apo-β-carotenal + an uncharacterized product

Other name(s): 8′-apo-β-carotenol:O2 oxidoreductase (14′,13′-cleaving)
Systematic name: 8′-apo-β-carotenol:oxygen oxidoreductase (14′,13′-cleaving)
Comments: A thiol-dependent enzyme isolated from rat and rabbit. Unlike EC, β-carotene-15,15′-dioxygenase, it is not active towards β-carotene. The secondary product has not been characterized, but may be (3E,5E)-7-hydroxy-6-methylhepta-3,5-dien-2-one.
