Glossary: β-ionone = (3E)-4-(2,6,6-trimethylcyclohex-1-en-1-yl)but-3-en-2-one
Other name(s): CCD7 (gene name); MAX3 (gene name); NCED7 (gene name)
Systematic name: 9-cis-β-carotene:oxygen oxidoreductase (9′,10′-cleaving)
Comments: Requires Fe2+. The enzyme participates in a pathway leading to biosynthesis of strigolactones, plant hormones involved in promotion of symbiotic associations known as arbuscular mycorrhiza.
