Accepted name: biflaviolin synthase
Reaction: (1) 2 flaviolin + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H+ + O2 = 3,3′-biflaviolin + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H2O
(2) 2 flaviolin + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H+ + O2 = 3,8′-biflaviolin + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H2O

Glossary: flaviolin = 4,5,7-trihydroxynaphthalene-1,2-dione
3,3′-biflaviolin = 3,3′,6,6′,8,8′-hexahydroxy-2,2′-binaphthalene-1,1′,4,4′-tetraone
3,8′-biflaviolin = 2,3′,4,6′,7,8′-hexahydroxy-1,2′-binaphthalene-1′,4′,5,8-tetraone
Other name(s): CYP158A2 (gene name); cytochrome P450 158A2
Systematic name: flaviolin,reduced ferredoxin:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: This cytochrome-P-450 (heme-thiolate) enzyme, from the soil-dwelling bacterium Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2), catalyses a phenol oxidation C-C coupling reaction, which results in the polymerization of flaviolin to form biflaviolin or triflaviolin without the incorporation of oxygen into the product [1,3]. The products are highly conjugated pigments that protect the bacterium from the deleterious effects of UV irradiation [1].
